Man Utd to pay massive £75m to sign Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria

Reports from BBC Sport suggested that Manchester United is all set to pay a huge £75million transfer fee in order to land Angel Di Maria at Old Trafford.

Real manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that the Argentinian winger Di Maria had already bid farewell to his colleagues and club staff.

The report claims that the Red Devils have been quoted £75m for the winger ahead of his move to Old Trafford.

“Di Maria has not trained with us today and he came in to say goodbye to the players and people at the club,” BBC Sport quotes Ancelotti as saying during a press conference on Sunday. “There is nothing official yet but it is being sorted out. The decision is his and the club has done what it could to keep him here.”

United manager Louis van Gaal is keen to bring Di Maria, 26, before the summer transfer window shuts down, who would become the fourth summer acquisition this season.

United have already spent £72m this summer after capturing the services of defender Luke Shaw, midfielder Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo.

Di Maria joined Real Madrid in 2010 from Benfica and won Spanish La Liga in 2012 and the Champions League last season.
