United On The Verge Of Massive Transfer Deal As ‘€65m Bid Accepted’

United’s most expensive ever signing looks set to become United’s second most expensive sale with news that Paris Saint Germain have had a huge offer for the Argentinean winger accepted.

According to the latest reports the Reds are willing to lose in the region of £15 million by accepting a €65m bid from the French giants.

The Independent notes:

The end could be nigh for Angel Di Maria’s stay at Manchester United after reports claimed the club have accepted a €65m bid from Paris Saint-Germain to sell the unsettled winger.

Di Maria looks more and more likely to leave the club just a year after completing a British record £59.7m move from Real Madrid following an inconsistent debut season at Old Trafford. Having made a promising start to life at United, Di Maria’s form tailed off in November and he saw his place in the first team go to a rejuvenated Ashley Young, meaning the most expensive signing in British history had to make do with a place in the bench.

In many ways this represents a good deal for both clubs as Di Maria obviously doesn’t want to stay at United, losing ‘only’ £15 million for a player who’s stock fell rapidly as the season progressed, isn’t too shabby.

PSG on the other hand get a player, who if they can keep happy is still one of the most dangerous wingers on the planet.

It’s not the fairy tale many Reds were expecting but with Memphis Depay arriving, plus a somewhat rejuvenated Juan Mata now seemingly a certain starter, places in the starting XI are limited and there’s a good chance, United have just got a huge sum for a player that would’ve been warming the bench this season.

  1. It remains to be seen, all the reports are still coming out a Di Maria obsessed French media.

    De Gea was supposed to have left now, his transfer being “hours away”, yet he will start against Barca tomorrow night.

    Losing Di Maria after 1 year is an admission of defeat and I just can’t see Woodward letting him go. No after 1 season. Id rather have Di Maria in the tent piss out rather than outside the tent pissing in.
