That represents a £15m hit on the British-record sum that United paid Real Madrid for the 27-year-old last summer, after which he largely struggled in his 29 Premier League appearances.
PSG have held a long-term interest in Di Maria and sensed an opportunity to get their man following reports that the South American was looking to leave Manchester only 12 months after arriving.
He did not join up with his United teammates on their pre-season tour of the United States, and was in Doha, where PSG’s owners are based, this week to undergo a medical and complete the deal.
Di Maria said: “I am very proud, and can’t wait to wear the colours of Paris Saint-Germain. I want to win every competition we enter, both in France and in Europe. I want to win the Champions League.”
He is expected to be officially unveiled by the French treble winners at a 5.30pm press conference.
