Transfers are the main thing on everyone’s mind at Manchester United this week, especially addressing the weakness in Louis van Gaal’s camp in defence and the centre of midfield. It is now almost three-weeks since Ed Woodward said that there was a big money belt available for United to spend this summer, and as of yet nothing has been done.
But, the latest reports state that Manchester United are set to change all that, by bidding a whopping £50million for Real Madrid midfielder Angel Di Maria. Not only the transfer fee alone is mouth watering, but United are set to offer Di Maria a wage boost, handing him £200,000-a-week to convince him to move to Old Trafford, according to the Daily Mail.
The Mails figures claim the following; transfer fee £50million, wages £200,000-a-week, five-year contract.
It is not only Manchester United that are on the chase to secure the signature of Di Maria, French giants PSG were said to be the only destination that the Argentinian, but in the past week they have pulled out of the transfer due to financial fair play.
In other transfer news for United this week, they are set to complete the signing of defender Marcos Rojo this week, after a reported £16million fee agreed.
Di Maria would be a fantastic addition to the squad at Manchester United, but do we feel that the transfer fee and wages are too much?
