Angel Di Maria has confirmed that he will be staying at Manchester United next season.
The Argentine has struggled to make a significant impact since arriving for a British-transfer record £59.7m fee from Real Madrid last summer and had been tipped to leave for Paris Saint-Germain.

While admitting that he has found the Premier League to be tougher than La Liga, Di Maria has revealed a determination to come back next year and make a better impression.
He is quoted by The Daily Mail as saying: “I have just finished my first season playing for Manchester United. Now I will play the Copa America and then I will move back to Manchester for next season and do my best there.
“It was a hard season for me. I think it was hard because it was another country and another league, and this league is harder than the Spanish one.
“So, I couldn’t adapt myself as I wanted to. La Liga and the Premier League are completely different. The Premier League is physically stronger. It was not easy at all. I ended playing few minutes.”
The 27-year-old midfielder scored four goals in 32 appearances for United last season.
