Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea says new team-mate Angel di Maria is determined to be a success
David De Gea says British record signing Angel di Maria is determined to do well at Manchester United.
The Argentina international completed a club-record £59.7m move to the Red Devils from Real Madrid last month, signing a five-year contract at Old Trafford.
I would have liked him [Hernandez] to stay on at United but he was keen to move away to get regular playing time

Di Maria made an encouraging debut as the 26-year-old looked the most likely to find a way past Burnley as United played out a goalless draw at Turf Moor last weekend.
“He’s delighted to be at Manchester United and he seems really determined to do well,” De Gea said.
“We try not to talk about Madrid too much so that he can fully focus on settling in at United.”
De Gea backed Real Madrid striker Javier Hernandez to score lots of goals for los Blancos after sealing a loan switch to the Spanish capital from United.
“He’s a great guy. I am sure that he will do really well at Madrid,” De Gea added.
“I would have liked him to stay on at United but he was keen to move away to get regular playing time and I think he’ll score plenty of goals for Madrid.”
