As well as Manchester United’s Angel Di Maria, Paris Saint-Germain have also been tipped to make a move for France left-back Benoit Tremoulinas, a player who has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

They have been heavily linked with a move for United’s Di Maria who, despite being signed for a club-record fee of £59.7 million last summer, didn’t wholly impress the Red Devils fans [Standard].

The Argentine international may have contributed 10 assists, but he came in for criticism from some portions of the United fanbase after a series of underwhelming showings [Express].

The Standard report that PSG—who attempted to sign Di Maria a year ago—may finally get their man, and are looking to add the 27-year-old to the already-completed signing of Gladbach keeper Kevin Trapp.

According to Le 10 Sport, Paris won’t stop there.

The French source have indicated that the reigning French champions are also looking to reinforce the left-back position, with Maxwell not getting any younger and Lucas Digne having failed to progress as many had hoped.

Blanc may turn to Sevilla’s Tremoulinas, who featured for Sevilla as they lifted the Europa League title last term.

The consistent full-back knows Blanc well, and was a key player for the ex-France captain during his successful stint as Girondins de Bordeaux coach.

Incidentally, United may also be interested in the full-back, with Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas recommending that Louis van Gaal moves for the international left-back.
