According to the Daily Mail, Neville had high hopes for the pair down United’s left-hand side, but admits Di Maria has badly struggled to settle since his big move from Real Madrid.

“I fully expected Di Maria and Luke Shaw to form a devastating partnership down the left flank and, even at close to £60m, I had no thoughts whatsoever that his signing was a risk,” he said.

“He has come to United when he did not want to leave Madrid, has suffered the trauma of a burglary, and started to work for a new manager while playing in a team that is still in a ‘storm’ phase of development.”
