The will he won’t he saga of Angel Di Maria’s reported transfer to Paris Saint Germain continued last night with news that not only has United’s record signing not arrived with the squad for the pre-season tour but also the manager has no idea why not.
The Reds boss spoke to the press following the latest game and was asked about the Argentinean winger.
“He was not on the plane,”
said Louis Van Gaal when asked about Di Maria following United’s 3-1 pre-season win over Barcelona.
“Marcos Rojo was also not on the plane. He has had a passport issue, from Angel Di Maria I don’t know why. I cannot say anything.”
The latest reports suggest that Di Maria is set to move to the Paris outfit sometime over the next few days with papers in France claiming United have already agreed a deal.
The fact a manager usually so in control of his squad is oblivious to why his most expensive signing isn’t with his his squad seems to indicate the end may be nigh for Di Maria.
