Paris Fans have stated their confidence that the winger will pass his medical in Doha, Qatar today, and will be available to play in Les Parisien’s first clash of the new Ligue 1 season against LOSC Lille.
They cite reports that Di Maria looks set to be presented this coming Friday at the Peninsula Hotel in Paris – in what will be a week of heavy travelling for the Argentine.
It seems that the ongoing saga – which has quickly reached a significant level of monotony – will finally be put to bed in the coming days.
The former Real Madrid forward was awarded an extended summer break due to his participation in the Copa America tournament – in which Argentina lost to hosts Chile on penalties in the final – and later refused to link up with his United team-mates on their pre-season tour of the States.
Louis van Gaal – rather unconvincingly – has persistently denied knowing the 27-year-old’s whereabouts, but all signs pointed towards a player having given up after just one unsettling year in the Premier League.
