Manchester United may have received a major boost in their pursuit of Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria due to Financial Fair Play restrictions on Paris Saint-Germain, Marca reports.

The Argentine international is high in demand this summer after seemingly being put up for sale by Madrid despite his fine performances for the club as they won the Champions League and Copa del Rey in 2013/14.

United have been one of the clubs interested in him, but looked set to miss out on his signing due to the desire of Ligue 1 big-spenders PSG to snap him up as well.

However, the club are under pressure to adhere to Uefa’s Financial Fair Play regulations after being hit with a fine for breaking these rules last season, and their signing of David Luiz from Chelsea for around £50m means they will now need to make around that much back in transfer fees.

The player himself is thought to be keen on playing in the Champions League next season, and it has previously been reported that he rejected an offer to move to Old Trafford in the hope of signing for PSG instead.

Still, United may now be in with a chance of buying him following this latest revelation.
