The Argentina international has already scored three goals and made three assists in five Premier League appearances following a British record £59.7m move to Manchester United.
There is always going to be pressure, but he has played for another massive club in Real Madrid
While the former Red Devils striker is surprised Madrid decided to sell the South American, Cole is thrilled to have such a quality player at Old Trafford.
“He doesn’t [seem overly-expensive] at all,” Cole is quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News.
“The crazy thing with all those guys who have signed for that kind of money is they just take it.
“It is like water off a duck’s back. They get on with what they have to get on with and are all doing really well.
“Di Maria has certainly been fantastic so far.
“I think when you come to a football club like Manchester United, there is always going to be pressure, but he has played for another massive club in Real Madrid.
”So he is used to having the cameras always on him – you might say having the microscope on him but, the way he has started at United, he won’t have a problem as he is clearly a quality player.”
