Angel Di Maria could have left Manchester United quietly, but the £59.7m flop has chosen to diss the club – albeit indirectly – as he prepares to complete his £44m transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
The former Real Madrid star did not enjoy a very good time at Old Trafford.
However, despite his failings on the field, Di Maria was treated well by the club’s fans, who took him to their hearts.
That warmth and love may have just been destroyed though, with the uttering of some words United supporters will not approve of.
According to Kevin Palmer, who writes for the Sunday World in Ireland, as well as ESPN, Di Maria said: “If you join PSG, you are you probably taking a step up.”
