United set to approach Spanish giants for Di Maria.
Manchester Untied are reportedly keeping tabs on Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria, according to talkSPORT.
The current league-leaders are keeping their options open ahead of an expected departure for Portuguese star Nani.
The winger has found himself increasingly marginalised at the club this season, having made just four starts in the league after the club failed to meet the player’s demands for an improved contract.
Sir Alex Ferguson is apparently willing to consider offers for the player come the end of the season and has identified Di Maria as the man to replace him.
The Argentine was reported to be interesting United during his time at Benfica, but lost out to the player’s signature when Real swooped in with a £20 million deal.
Di Maria has failed to impress during his time at the Bernabeu, putting in inconsistent performances to the frustration of the Spanish giants’ management.
Rumours have been swirling that the 24 year old could be set for a summer exit and that has put United on alert over a potential move.
Di Maria has a reported five years remaining on his contract, but the Real hierarchy are said to be willing to negotiate over any potential transfer fee.
