MANCHESTER (UK) – According to ESPN FC, Manchester United and Real Madrid have agreed to terms on a transfer fee for Angel Di Maria.
Di Maria, 26, is expected to move to Old Trafford for a British-record fee of £63.8 million (€80 million euros, $105.6 million US) and sign a five to six-year contract with the Red Devils.
Left off of Los Blancos Super Cup fixture against Atletico—which they lost 1-0—the ten-time UEFA Champions League winners have reportedly decided to part ways with the disgruntled midfielder after signing Columbian midfielder James Rodriguez from Monaco to a six-year, €80 million deal in July.
At Real Madrid, Di Maria tallied 11 total goals in all competitions in 52 apps in 2013-14.
Linked to United for months, Di Maria would bolster an otherwise flat United side that would draw Sunderland 1-1 and sit in seventh position with Tottenham Hotspur at top of the table.
Based on United’s first two fixtures, they could use the crafty South American import’s creativity at midfield.
After signing fellow Argentine, Marcos Rojo and missing out on Sami Khedira, Mats Hummels, Toni Kroos and Thomas Vermaelen, first-year boss Louis van Gaal needed to get Di Maria in the worst way for a floundering United.
Based on reports, it looks like Gaal finally got him in Di Maria.
