Manchester United’s new £59.7m signing Angel di Maria left former club Real Madrid on a somewhat bitter note and now his father has slammed the Spanish giants for the way they treated his son.

Di Maria was considered to be one of Madrid’s best players in 2013/14 as they won the Champions League and Copa del Rey and yet he was never given any confirmation that his place at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu was safe.

Things got worse for the midfielder when direct rivals for his position in the starting XI were signed in the shape of Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez.

In the end di Maria could take no more of what he deemed a lack of respect from Los Blancos and put in a transfer request, something the Red Devils took advantage of with a British record bid.

“Angel was never appreciated. It was like they didn’t want him in the club and showed him no affection,” di Maria senior was quoted by the Daily Star.

“My son is tired of always fighting, demonstrating and showing everything.

“Real Madrid loses a key, dominant player who at any time can make a play and win the game.”

Di Maria is expected to make his United debut on Saturday when the 13-time Premier League champions take on Burnley, still looking for their first win of the season.

It has been a tough start to life at Old Trafford for new manager Louis van Gaal and the Dutchman will be hoping the introduction of the 26-year-old will help improve the side’s fortunes.
