Arsenal’s €65m offer for player could kill Manchester United’s hope of landing €80m star


Arsenal could play a key part in solving the Angel di Maria saga.

Well, there was nothing complex in it. Di Maria was one of the key players for Real Madrid last season, but the club need to sell him having already signed James Rodriguez from Monaco.

The asking price varies from one newspaper to another, but Madrid based newspapers maintain that Real Madrid are demanding a fee in the region of €80m.

Angel di Maria

Manchester United and PSG are thought to be the two European heavy weights vying for his signature. PSG are keen to land him but they need to offload some of their stars, like Edinson Cavani or Ezequiel Lavezzi in order to balance the book.

Therefore, it gives Manchester United an option to negotiate at a slightly lesser price. This is where Arsenal could end United’s hopes.


According to Catalan newspaper Sport, Arsenal who are looking to sign a world class striker, and preparing a €65m bid for Edinson Cavani.

Although PSG publicly maintain the stance that the player is not for sale, they would simply bite the hands of Arsenal, should such offer is put on table. Sport reckon that PSG would be able to sign Di Maria once they offload Cavani.

Last but not the least: This coming from a catalan based newspaper!

  1. First of all, I would like to thanks the Arsenal owners who allowed the necessary budget for the manager Arsene Wenger for the signing of the world class playees like Alexis Sanchez, Debuchy, Calum Chambers and David Ospina. I real appriciate the works of the manager this transfer window hope to bring the throphies to the Gunners. However, I am still doubtful for the Gunners squad and the quality players compared to the others clubs like chelsea, man city and
    liverpool. So I recommend the Gunners to be signing a centeral striker, a defensive midfielder and a centeral defensive like Eduardo Varagas/Edsin Cavani, matisic/monalos and william Carvalho/sami khedira/Tiote respectively. If real Arsenal do this they can real win the title race over their rivals in 2014/2015 season. Thank you wenger and we trust in Arsene wenger forever.

  2. Well you stated the obvious signings we all know we should make, but I feel the rest of the article was about you getting a free ticket for the match tomorrow.

  3. As a matter of fact, our (arsenal) team is good but we at least still in need of a world-class striker who will complement with giroud. DM & RB are the most important areas to build. So I suggest we go for Reus, Cavani & William or Khedira.

  4. It could work if Cavani was able to come in on the same money as Alexi and Ozil. We would also need to sell players off to try and balance the books, Poldoski could be the one to go. We also need another defender/dm and we could get that in Mbia coming in on a free transfer.
