Now here’s a sight that Paris Saint-Germain AND Man United fans will be excited to see next year. What will the Red Devils do with all of that money they get for Di Maria?
With a transfer of Angel Di Maria from Man United to PSG expected to be imminent, one of the French giant’s biggest stars – and a noteworthy Man United target – gave his stamp of approval for the Premier League flop to join him in Ligue 1.
According to the Daily Mail, PSG super striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to welcome Di Maria to France with wide open arms, not only for the talent he brings to the table, but to show off the “magnitude” of the club and their global reach.
‘That (Di Maria signing) shows how much they are willing to get what they want,” the 33-year-old Zlatan said. “By investing in players like that. Because every year they invest to get big players but also players that fit in the team. So there is no limits.
“The people behind this they want to become big. They are dreaming bigger and they will get bigger.”
Ironically, Ibrahimovic is one of Man United’s summer transfer targets, but after leading the club in league goals last year, PSG has refused to listen to offers for their star striker.
“It’s all about small details. Real Madrid are a fantastic team,” Zlatan continued. “They have fantastic players but when Real Madrid got Gareth Bale they became better for sure and we will become better for sure with Di Maria.
“I don’t know if it is done but of course if you get a chance to play with Di Maria it is fantastic thing. The guy has won everything. He is a fantastic player who plays for the team.
“He brings pace to a team. He brings quality, big quality and for sure he will make our team even better than it is today. So for sure he is welcome and we will receive him with open arms.”
Di Maria earned considerably notoriety as a massive flop in just one season with Man United after the club spent a Premier League-record £59.7 million on the Argentinian attacker. But that one season was marred with inconsistency and failure to gel with Louis van Gaal, so following a distant fourth place finish on the Premier League table, the Old Trafford bought offered him up wholesale for just £46 million.
