Manchester United to smash transfer record with £100m bid for Real Madrid star
In reports cited by Eurosport.com, Pep Guardiola has conceded defeat in his chase for Vfl Wolfsburg playmaker Kevin De Bruyne and has now turned his attention to the former Santiago Bernabeu star.
The report claims that Bayern director Michael Reschke has already made contact with Old Trafford chiefs over the Argentine’s availability in the summer transfer window, and is prepared to go head-to-head with PSG.
The Metro state, however, that the Premier League giants will only consider allowing their record-signing to leave if they can recoup the entire £59.7m they paid just last summer.
Despite his time in Manchester so far viewed as somewhat of a failure, as was illustrated in the Red Devils’ Goal of the Season contenders, Di Maria played a part in all four of the club’s magic moments in front of goal in his debut campaign.
With a player of such natural ability, a second season at Old Trafford wouldn’t be unjust.
