Manchester United Prepare £100m Package To Get Their Man

Manchester United are lining up a £100 million package to lure Angel Di Maria to Old Trafford according to the Daily Mail. The £100 millon would cover both a transfer fee and the players wages.

A transfer fee of £50-55m is expected to be the fee that Real Madrid require for the pacey Di Maria. With Manchester United offering a five-year contract worth £200,000 it would see the club offer a £100m package to acquire the high profile signing Manchester United fans crave.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Angel Di Maria all summer, with speculation intensifying in the last number of weeks after Di Maria’s move to PSG collapsed and with the Ligue 1 giants admitting they will not be signing the Argentine it has boosted Van Gaal’s hopes of signing the 26-year-old.

Van Gaal was speaking to the Mail on Sunday just last week and indicated that the possible signing of Di Maria would give his side another dimension.

“You cannot compare how the players will do under the guidance of Moyes with those same players under the guidance of Louis van Gaal.Every trainer and coach and manager wants a different style of play and different tactics.Now we have five No 9s and four No 10s and we don’t have wingers to play attacking width, not at the highest level, of Ronaldo or Di Maria or something like that.

So I have to play also in another way and you have seen that. It’s a strategy of Manchester United to buy players who are on the way up and getting better, but I only buy when I think we need to.”

A transfer fee of £55m may be required to acquire the Argentine winger’s services, and it would be a major signal of intent if United were to pull off this signing.

Another option could be Juan Cuadrado who also been linked in the last number of weeks. But it is clear that United will be targeting a wide player as they aim to recruit more talent before the transfer window closes.

As James Rodriguez has been signed as the new ‘Galactico’ by Real Madrid President Florentino Perez, it seems that Di Maria is surplus to requirements at the Spanish giants and with PSG out of the running, it looks like an Old Trafford move is gathering pace.

United looked paceless in attack against Swansea and with the possible arrival of Di Maria it would see much needed pace added to  this current United side that looked to be lacking in penetration in the final third in their Premier League opener.
