Manchester United Target Ángel Di María Says Goodbye To Real Madrid?

Angel di María has bid farewell to his Real Madrid
team-mates as a possible move to Manchester United
moves closer.
The Real manager Carlo Ancelotti, who revealed earlier
this week that Di María had told the club he wanted to
leave and rejected the offer of a new contract, said the
Argentina winger had not taken part in training on Sunday
but had instead “come to say goodbye”.
United have not made any official comment on reports that
they are ready to sign Di María. The fee for the 26 year old
is believed to be around £60m, which would eclipse the
British record set by Fernando Torres’s £50m move from
Liverpool to Chelsea in 2011.
Ancelotti said:
“He has come and has not practised. It’s not official yet,
but he came to say goodbye. We gave thanks for what he
has done for this club and wish him luck for the future. It is
not official, but it is solved.
I have personally had a good relationship with him and
did a fantastic job here. It was his decision to leave
because the club did everything possible for him to stay
by offering everything to him to stay.”
The Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has
already signed Di María’s international team-mate Marcos
Rojo this summer, while the club have also brought in
another defender in England’s Luke Shaw as well as the
Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera.
The former United captain Gary Neville believes Di María
would “fit the bill” for the Red Devils.
Neville told Sky Sports:
“He can run and Manchester United haven’t got any pace
in wide areas. It is incredible. That is what the club has
been built on for the last 10 to 15 years being able to get
from box to box quickly, being able to spring on teams,
having people that can dribble and are quick in the final
“They have Adnan Januzaj but they really have lost that
variety. Last year the signings didn’t fit the bill for me in
terms of what United are and the philosophy. This fits the
bill if they can get Di María.
“The fans say a central midfielder or a centre-back is
needed more, but I don’t see any difference with a winger
in that they need all three. This is the first part of that the
correct signing, if they can get him.”
Does this mean good news to all Manchester United
