Manchester United have been quite active during this summer transfer window, making key acquisitions in the faces of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Memphis Depay, however, while being able to sign stars, it’s possible that they will lose their star from last summer. Angel Di Maria was brought to the Old Trafford for the colossal amount of £59.7 million, but it seems that just after one year with the team, he will not be a part of it for the upcoming season. The club that has shown the most interest in the Argentinian is Paris Saint-Germain. According to numerous reports, the French team is ready to pay an amount close to £46 million.
Di Maria started last season with some great performances but wasn’t able to sustain his form throughout the entire campaign. As a result during the year, Louis Van Gaal started to rely less on the fast paced wing. If the Argentinian does indeed leave Old Trafford, he will become one of United’s biggest flops. It’s hard to find a reason why Di Maria’s form has been going down since he left Santiago Bernabeu – when the wing was part of Real Madrid, he showed ability to create chances from scratch and that was the main reason why the Red Devils paid big money for him. Nevertheless, the Argentinian never found his rhythm in England and that is why United will most likely let him go.
If Di Maria departs, Van Gaal will have to find a player that will have to replace him. At the moment, there are speculations that Barcelona’s Pedro Rodriguez is a targeted replacement and if the Red Devils find a way to get him, they will definitely receive a very offensively skilled player. Pedro has spent a lot of time on the bench last season, so he will surely be happy to change clubs if he gets the chance to play as a starter once again.
