Angel di Maria has completed his move from Manchester United to Paris St Germain.
PSG and United agreed a 63 million euro (£44.3million) fee for the midfielder on Sunday and earlier this week he passed a medical in Qatar.
On Thursday afternoon, United announced Di Maria had completed his move to the French champions.
United tweeted: “£mufc can confirm the sale of Angel Di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain is complete. We wish him well for the future.”
At 27 years of age, the Argentine international, from Rosario, began his professional career in the 2005-06 season. World U20 champion in 2007 with the Albiceleste, Angel Di Maria transferred that same year to Benfica where he quickly imposed himself in the starting XI. In 2008, he won Olympic gold with Argentina in Beijing. He has earned 66 caps for Argentina, scoring 15 goals.
In June 2010, he transferred to Real Madrid, with whom he won the Spanish championship (2012), two Copa del Rey (2011, 2014), the Spanish Super Cup (2012) and the UEFA Champions League (2014) in which he shone in the final against Atlético de Madrid.
