Manchester United in driving seat to land €80m world class player

Angel di Maria

Another twist in the tale in the Angel di Maria saga. Well, to be honest, there is hardly anything from Madrid based newspapers, but Catalan newspapers have an update on it. And it might excite Manchester United fans.

Just to recap what we have seen over the past couple of months – a) Real Madrid willing to sell the player b) the player wants to move c) player is key in Carlo Ancelotti’s plan d) Madrid signed James Rodriguez and will recoup the money by selling him to the highest bidder e) Manchester United and PSG have shown interest in him f) his price has almost doubled in these two months g) PSG ready to pay €80m for him h) However, they cannot sign unless they sell i) they offered €10m for him, will pay the remaining €70m next year  – any idea what is the next point?

Of course you know. Real Madrid have rejected it. Why won’t they? But, double check – the report comes from Catalan press (Sport),and they basically took the news from English sources.

PSG are now looking to sell Cavani to comply with the FFP rules, but as we have seen the Uruguayan recently admitted that he is not looking for a move this summer, which means United might have a chance to lure Di Maria for a much lower price. Obviously, you don’t expect United to pay €80m for a single player!
