PSG agree £46 million fee for Manchester United’s Angel di Maria

Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United have agreed a 65 million fee (£46 million) for winger Angel di Maria, according to a report from France Football.

The French publication believes Di Maria will join up with PSG tomorrow or Saturday in the United States. The Argentina international was scheduled to join up with United on July 25th.

This story has been “on and off” over the past 24 hours. But the reports from France are becoming louder and louder.

The Ligue Un champions chased the Argentine’s signature for most of last summer but were thwarted in their attempts to secure the winger due to their FFP restrictions. Di Maria would ultimately join United from Real Madrid for a British transfer record fee of £59.7 million (75 million).

After initially hitting the ground running in England, Di Maria struggled with his form and personal issues for the remainder of the 2014-15 campaign.

The lowlights for the Argentine were his sending off against Arsenal in the FA Cup quarter-final and the incident which saw his home broken into by thieves while Di Maria was home with his family.

Despite his struggles, Di Maria professed his loyalty to United – insisting the club would be his last destination in England – and later revealed that he wanted to prove himself in England.

However, if the report from France Football is correct, it appears the Argentina international has backtracked on those statements.

There has been speculation over the past few days that if Di Maria were to move to France, United would quickly responded by bidding for Barcelona forward Pedro.

The understanding in Spain is that United have been in advanced talks with the player, and all that’s left is for the English club to trigger the player’s release clause.

As of this morning, Barcelona have yet to receive an offer for Pedro – or any of the players in their squad.

However, manager Luis Enrique and club president Josep Bartomeu have left the door open for the veteran player to leave provided he makes an official request.

The next 24-48 hours could be interesting.
