French moneybags PSG are set to offer struggling Argentine star Angel Di Maria an escape route from his floundering Premier League career with Manchester United.
The attacking midfielder has struggled to regain the form which saw him named man of the match in last season’s Champions League final since his move to England over the summer, and reports suggest United are keen to recoup the British transfer fee record of £60m they paid for his services. PSG had been in for the Argentine before he made the switch to the English giants but were forced to put their advances on hold thanks to Financial Fair Play restrictions.
Di Maria has endured a tormented season by his high standards, with manager van Gaal’s constant changing of lineup and tactics not helping him settle in. What’s more, the winger’s private life has been turbulent since the move, with his house being burgled back in February.
Qatari-owned PSG is one of European football’s biggest financial heavyweights, and have already splashed big bucks on Di Maria’s compatriots Javier Pastore and Ezequiel Lavezzi in recent seasons — sure to help the forward settle in should he make the move across the channel.
