Angel set to fly away: Di Maria to complete his exit from Man United this weekend

Last updated 5 years ago | By Mirror

Angel Di Maria will fly to Paris this weekend to complete his exit from Manchester United.

Paris Saint Germain have agreed a five year contract - four years plus a further one year option - for the Argentinian midfielder.

United may have to take a financial hit on the £59.7m that they paid Real Madrid for Di Maria last summer.

But they have insisted that PSG's first approach of £29m will not be enough.

PSG will match his £200,000-a-week wages and expect him to do a medical by next Monday and be unveiled next week.

Boss Laurent Blanc confirmed over the weekend that a deal for the Argentine was close.

"There is a good possibility [he could sign] but there is nothing official," he said.

"There is an anticipation he is going to come to the US but as to which jersey he is going to wear, we don't know yet.

"If he does make a change hopefully it will be for Paris Saint-Germain. Right now we have to wait because there are two big clubs out there in discussion."
