The Red Devils shelled out a British record £59.7m fee to bring the Argentine winger to Old Trafford from Real Madrid last week.
The player wanted to come to Paris, but this was not possible
PSG chief Al-Khelaifi says that the Ligue 1 side were in discussions to sign Di Maria but couldn’t settle on a price.
“For two or three weeks, I have discussed this issue with my friend Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid,” he told Le Parisien.
“We met twice, we made an offer, but we are not agreed on the price. For me it was too expensive.
“It has nothing to do with the financial fair play. The player wanted to come to Paris, but this was not possible.”
Di Maria made his United debut as he played 70 minutes in the Red Devils’ goalless draw with Burnley last Saturday.
