The Argentine ace has made a storming start to his career in England since arriving from Real Madrid in a £59.7m deal over the summer.
After bagging three goals in his first five games for the club – including one against Everton at the weekend – he now looks set to follow in the footsteps of the rest of United’s long line of famous number 7’s.
And Blackett says even Di Maria’s United teammates have been stunned by his ability.
“He’s been amazing,” he said.
“He’s one of the world’s best players and the things that he does in training really make us stop and stare.
“The dribbling, the close control, these are things that a lot of players would like to have, but that not everybody’s got. He really is special.”
However, Blackett believes he can challenge Di Maria when it comes to taking set pieces.
“Hopefully further on into the season, you’ll get to see me take one,” he added.
“I’d certainly be happy to if the opportunity came up. For now though, Angel’s the expert so I’m just looking up to him.”
