It’s not surprise that Old Trafford boss David Moyes is looking for wide attacking reinforcements given the poor form shown by his current options in that regard.
Nani, Luis Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young have all struggled for form whilst Danny Welbeck has gone off the boil following a strong start to the campaign. The fact that this has still not lead Moyes to offer new signing Wilfried Zaha a Premier League bow is perhaps a sign that the Scot doesn’t have a great deal of faith in the former Crystal Palace man.
This source suggests Man United will make an opening offer of £17m, but this is some way below the 25 year old’s £41m release clause though the two sides may be open to negotiating a fair price for the Argentine international.
Di Maria moved to Real Madrid from Benfica back in June 2010 and has collected a handy 28 goals and 54 assists in his 153 appearances for the Spanish giants though the arrival of Gareth Bale will inevitably see his chances grow increasingly limited.
