Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says that Angel Di Maria has said goodbye to his team-mates ahead of a proposed switch to Manchester United, according to various sources in Spain.
The Italian tactician, speaking at his afternoon press conference, has been quoted as saying that although a deal is not yet official, the Argentine winger is close to leaving the Bernabeu.
United have been linked with the player for much of the summer transfer window so far, and despite rumours of late interest from Manchester City, it is expected that he will now complete a move to Old Trafford, in what will surely go down as one of the signings of the summer.
Various sources tweeted live from Ancelotti’s press conference as the former Chelsea boss confirmed that Di Maria is preparing for an exit from the Spanish giants.

It is also being claimed that United will attempt to bring in two more players, one of which is likely to be Ajax defender Daley Blind.
So, Di Maria looks on. Fee still an issue but it’ll get done. Now, with a week to go, United will try for two more. Blind + one.
