Real Madrid could be prepared to sell Argentine sensation Angel Di Maria this summer, and Arsenal will undoubtedly be interested in the flyer should he become available, Football Direct News reports.
Di Maria has been used in a more withdrawn central midfield role for Real Madrid this term, due to the excellent attacking trio of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo occupying the front three positions.
This position obviously doesn’t get the best out of Di Maria’s key attributes: his dribbling, and his ability to supply dangerous balls from the byline. Despite this, he’s still scored seven and assisted 13 goals in La Liga and the Champions League combined this term.
Carlo Ancelotti apparently sees him as surplus to requirements with young Spanish stars Isco and Jese providing more than adequate backup.
Arsenal have a close negotiating relationship with the Spanish giants, following their £42.5m deal to bring Mesut Ozil to the Emirates last summer, although they would not be expected to pay a similarly astronomical fee for the Argentine.
Di Maria can play wide left or wide right, and could form a potent duo in attacking midfield with his former Madrid teammate Ozil if a deal were to be concluded.
