PSG chief confirms interest in signing Man United winger

Paris Saint-Germain are officially interested in signing Angel di Maria from Manchester United this summer

Laurent Blanc has confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Angel di Maria from Manchester United this summer.

The Argentina international’s future at Old Trafford has been a subject of speculation in recent months following his inconsistent first season in the Premier League.

PSG have been touted as a possible destination for the winger, who only managed to score three Premier League goals after joining the club from Real Madrid last summer.

Now, the French side’s head coach has confirmed that PSG are interested in attempting to bring Di Maria to the club, but concedes that it will be difficult to push through a deal.

Blanc told L’Equipe: Di Maria, he’s good. We have more freedom, but it remains a difficult project for us because we’re not alone in wanting him.

“When you see the financial power of the English clubs, they are attacking everyone. Competition is very, very tough.

“Don’t forget, Manchester United paid a fortune to sign him.

“For us to work effectively, we have to think of other solutions. We must be proactive.”

Di Maria only managed to score three goals and notch up 11 assists in the Premier League last season as Louis van Gaal’s men secured a fourth-placed finish in the top-flight.

He joined the club in a record £59.7m deal from Real Madrid last summer.
