Di Maria and Rooney have linked up to devastating effect this season.

The two combined for United’s second goal in last weekend’s 2-1 win at Arsenal.

Di Maria has played with both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo during his illustrious career – with Messi for Argentina and alongside Ronaldo at Real Madrid.

Barcelona legend Messi and Real hero Ronaldo are widely considered to be the two best players in the world right now.

Di Maria has paid Rooney a huge compliment by saying that playing with the Liverpudlian is quite similar to playing with La Liga’s royal duo.

“Rooney is at the top level,” he said. “The other day I was talking to my friend and I said ‘Rooney and me understand each other, just like Messi and me in the Argentina squad, or Cristiano at Real Madrid’.

“I get on really well with Rooney, we get together on the pitch to kick the ball about, to do things. He’s a spectacular player and he’s one of the top players in the game.”
