United ready mammoth bid for Argentine winger.
Manchester United are readying a deal worth £100m to sign Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria, according to the Daily Mail.
The Argentine international has been tracked by the Red Devils all summer, and now looks set to be subject of a last-ditch bid from the club, who are prepared to pay vast amounts to bring him to Old Trafford.
The £100m would cover both his £50m transfer fee and wage package, with United hoping to tempt him to accept a season without Champions League football by signing a contract worth £200,000 per week for the next five years.
This would certainly make Di Maria one of the most expensive signings in United’s history, in what looks like a strong reaction from the club after their Premier League opening day defeat at home to Swansea City.
