Angel di Maria on the verge of completing PSG switch
Troubled Manchester United winger Angel di Maria is headed for the Old Trafford exit door.
His move to European big spenders Paris Saint Germain is set to materialize when the Argentine completes his medical within the next 24 hours.
Having signed for the Red Devils from Real Madrid last summer for a record British transfer fee of £59.7m, Di Maria is expected to meet his new employers in Doha.
The transfer fee for the deal is believed to be in the region of about £44.5m.
The 27-year-old has a poor first season in England and clearly failed to settle at his new club.
He did not join his teammates during their pre-season tour of the United States as well, leading to speculation of his impending move.
Though the former Real Madrid man started off brightly, his performances began dipping from mid-season and he never really managed to hit peak form again.
From United’s perspective, the acquisition of Di Maria didn’t go according to plan. The fact they paid a big sum and end up making a loss at the time of his sale has made matters worse for Louis van Gaal.
