United close in on Real Madrid star.
Manchester United could be close to completing the signing of Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The Argentine is expected to fly to England to conclude talks over a £56m move to Old Trafford, making him the club’s most expensive signing of all time, as well as breaking the overall British transfer fee record.
Di Maria was a key player for Real in their Champions League-winning campaign last season, scoring 11 goals and weighing in with 26 assists in all competitions, becoming one of Carlo Ancelotti’s most important players.
However, the £63m signing of Colombian World Cup star James Rodriguez from AS Monaco looks to have pushed the 26-year-old out of the door before the end of the transfer window.
