You would expect that Manchester United will at least one ‘Hollywood’ signing this summer in a vigorous attempt to get straight back into The Champions League. Many hope that will be Arturo Vidal but there is of course room for two new megastars.
And, with each passing day, it seems more likely that Manchetser United will be welcoming Argenitna starAngel Di Maria into the fold.
He has been sternly linked with Manchester United over the last few weeks and latest reports suggest that Manchester United have agreed personal terms with the player, with only a transfer fee left to be ironed out.
Angel Di Maria has edged a step closer to joining Manchester United after reportedly accepting the club’s £150,000-a-week contract offer.
Di Maria, nicknamed ‘El Fideo‘ (The Noodle – as he is so skinny) in his homeland, has had a mixed bag of a World Cup.
He has made some bizarre errors and, at times looked very erratic, but he has also been one of Argentina’s most potent attacking threats.
At 27 he’s just had his best season for Real Madrid with 11 goals and 26 assists in all competitions. He’s also known for his work ethic and is a natural athlete with great durability.
But with Arsenal sealing a deal for Alexis Sanchez for a fee of around £30-35m the question remains whether Di Maria would represent good value at a mooted £40m fee.
But if he can get Manchester United back to the top of the table by next May then all those questions will have been answered with a resounding ‘Yes’.
Let’s see him in action. Manchester United fans: worth the money?
