Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal has admitted that there are no guarantees as to whether record signing Angel Di Maria will still be at the club next season, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Argentine has struggled to make a consistent impact since his £59.7 million switch from Spanish giants Real Madrid last summer.
He has been hit by all manner of problems on and off the pitch, ranging from niggling injury worries to his family not being able to settle in Manchester following a robbery at their home.
This has meant that he has not been able to replicate his best form, and Van Gaal is painfully aware that the midfielder – who is being targeted by Ligue 1 side Paris Saint Germain – could decide to move on at the end of the season.
Di Maria hasn’t started a game for United since their FA Cup defeat to rivals Arsenal on March 9, and he is expected to feature from the bench again as the club take on West Brom.
“The manager and the club is always dependable on the opinion of the player himself, the player decides, so we shall see what he decides,” said Van Gaal.
“He cannot say that he has had a marvellous season here, he cannot say that.
“The decision is not only to him because now we have a contract, so we shall speak always with every player, evaluation, as I always do.
“Then we speak with each other about the future, and that is with every player.
“I think Di Maria shall stay and he is working very hard. I am pleased with his attitude, so that is not a problem.”
