The transfer is expected to be announced tomorrow once the formalities have been tied up, with the deal for di Maria dwarfing the previous record of £50m, which Chelsea paid to Liverpool for striker Fernando Torres.
Di Maria has been consistently liked with United in recent days and becomes the marquee signing that Louis van Gaal and Ed Woodward have been desperately hunting this summer.
