Real Madrid ready to sell €50m Manchester United target

Angel di Maria

Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria, star of the Champions League final, has yet to fire for Argentina in the World Cup so far. The front page of Spanish newspaper AS says that Real Madrid are keen to sign Colombia’s highly rated forward James Rodriguez, who has scored a breath taking goal against Uruguay in the round of 16 matches at the World Cup.

The sensational forward has scored five goals this season and would cost around £31m though Monaco are bound to charge more. Not only his performance in the World Cup would inflate his asking price, but at the same time he has contract till 2018 as well. 

So, Madrid looking to offload Argentine winger Angel di Maria in order to recoup the money to sign James Rodriguez.


Di Maria has a contract till 2018 but the Argentine is unsure what future holds for him at Madrid. “I don’t know if I’ll stay at Real Madrid, we’ll see what happens” he said. 

He went on to say that his Argentine team-mate Lionel Messi is the best player in the world, which to us is a pretty obvious statement, but Spanish newspaper AS interprets it as a gesture of showing contempt towards Ronaldo and blames it on Di Maria for plotting an exit strategy. 

Basically, the claim is Di Maria wants to leave Real Madrid and the Argentine is trying his best to force his way out. Therefore, Madrid have shifted their focus on Rodriguez, who is leading the race for the Golden boot, having scored five goals in the World Cup so far.

AS reports that several European heavy weights are interested in signing Di Maria, like PSG and Manchester United. However, any potential buyer will have to pay €50m to sign him in the summer.

  1. 50million is 2much 4 a prayer who ve nt find d bck of d net in world cup

  2. Van Gal should forget Di maria & go for James Rodriguez because Fergi wanted him before Monaco now grap him.

  3. i think di maria would be a awesome signing for us @ united , instead of james rodrigeuz , 5 goals at a world cup says nothing , try scoring for the entire season .

  4. Is better 2 by di maria but dat 50 is 2 much is 2 offer real madrid i know real madrid want 2 sell him pls dy should just sell it 2 man u @ the rate of 40 million.

  5. Di Maria is good for Manchester united cause we are Lurking good attacking midfielders like Di Maria or Robben those two talented players would make a very big difference if they were to play for man u if V_Gaal was to bring James which position will he take when there are two deadly strikers upfront which are Rooney & V.Persie even though Rooney stepped down giving R.V.P the 10th position…

  6. Madrid are just confused. Sell di maria? Stupid thought. It shows that Di Maria is not appreciated after what he helped them achieve in the last UCL..They’ll never build players, they wait on other teams to build while they flex their financial muscles. Di maria is not surplus to requirement still they want to sign James. Rubbish.

  7. James prefers Madrid to United. United actually opted for Bebe, refusing every chance to sign James for £5m. This might play a huge role in getting him to consider Man United. Just hope Madrid will still keep him when they discover another player better than him in future.
