Reports are emanating today that Manchester United’s Angel di Maria is prime and ready for a move to Paris Saint-Germain. As reported by Le Parisien, the Argentine has agreed in principle to join the club.
Manchester United appear to be asking for a fee of €60m to recoup the vast amount they spent on him last summer from Real Madrid – which PSG are willing to pay. The ironic thing is that would never have happened had FFP regulations not hindered Le Parisiens. Di Maria would have been a PSG player had it not been for that factor. Time was wasted on trying to find a loophole on making a deal happen with the then European champions with even a season-long loan touted before paying a hefty fee for the permanent transfer.
Le Parisien claim though that Di Maria was wooed by the possibility of signing for the capital club last summer and that feeling still remains. He even revealed after signing for United that a move did not materialise only because of the financial debacle which of course was incurred by FFP.
With Yohan Cabaye on his way, Ezequiel Lavezzi is another that seemed certain to leave. However, Le Parisien also report that Paris are in no rush to sell the former Napoli star. If offers are to occur, they will review them but an upturn in his form and attitude towards the latter part of last season has left the club in no hesitant need to sell.
