Manchester United 10/11 to sign Angel Di Maria following manager’s interest in the Argentine
Competition: Premier League
Market: Di Maria to join Man Utd
Odds: 10/11 @ Betfair
Manchester United’s ongoing pursuit for Real Madrid winger Angel Dia Maria took a new turn as manager Louis van Gaal admitted he would love the Argentine in the United team for this season.
Reports had suggested the club made a lucrative bid for the talented midfielder, after French Ligue One side Paris Saint-Germain were in the market for his signature but pulled out of the deal due to Real’s asking price of him. Now United are in pole position.
“It is a strategy of Manchester United to (sign wingers). At this moment, we have five No.9s and four No.10s – and we don’t have wingers of the highest level to give us attacking width,” said van Gaal.
“Like Ronaldo or Di Maria or somebody like that. I only buy when I think we need to buy in the position that is necessary.”
There’s no doubt that Angel Di Maria could transform Manchester United in 2014/15. The 26-year-old made 17 assists in La Liga last season, crating 91 chances in total. His asking price is said to be in excess of £35M.
