Carlo Ancelotti didn’t use Angel di Maria in Real Madrid’s defeat against Atletico Madrid in the Super Cup due to “technical reasons.”
That didn’t stop Spanish media to speculate about the future of the Argentine. In fact there is nothing to speculate at all. Crystal clear.
Di Maria, who wants around €8m/year wages, doesn’t want to stay at the club. Real Madrid will actively try to sell him but he is equally welcome at the club, should any potential deal fail to materialise.
According to latest report from El Confidencial, Real Madrid are ready to sell at €65m. Manchester United are the only candidate vying for his signature.
They claim the relationship between the player and the club has deteriorated long time ago. Last summer, he was on the verge of leaving the club, but stayed in the end as Arsenal signed Mesut Ozil instead.
Although several Madrid players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos have expressed their desire to see Di Maria at the club but El Con says the player is determined to leave and has packed his bags, waiting for the imminent transfer to happen.
