The Argentine international is likely to leave the Bernabeu this summer due to the deteriation of his relationship with boss Jose Mourinho. The 24 year old is into his third season at the La Liga side but has failed to replicate the form he displayed in his first two campaigns, during which he was a veritable assist-making machine.
The former Benfica man is seen by Inter Milan as an able replacement for Wesley Sneijder, who left for Galatasaray last month. The Serie A side may well see Di Maria as filling an attacking midfield role as opposed to a spot out on the flanks.
Di Maria has scored four goals in 21 La Liga appearances thus far this season and provided just three assists this is a marked reduction in the level the Rosario born attacker was reaching last term when he was a pivotal part in the club’s domestic title success and only Lionel Messi and Mesut Ozil provided more assists.
A move for Di Maria would be an expensive proposition but Sir Alex Ferguson may feel that the Real Madrid man could act as an ideal replacement for Nani, who has had a very limited role in the Man United first team this term.
Ferguson will be more than aware that neither Luis Antonio Valencia or Ashley Young have made all that much of an impact going forward, indeed incredibly between them the pair have made 34 Premier League appearances and haven’t managed to score a single top tier goal between them this season.
