Man Utd Prepare £100m Di Maria Deal

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a £100 million package for Angel Di Maria as Louis van Gaal has urged the club to bring in new quality players.

Following their dismal start against Swansea, van Gaal has given executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, the green light to sign Di Maria.

It is understood United will offer the Argentine a £200 000 a week contract over five years, which would take the club’s investment - together with the transfer fee around £50 million - to £100 million.

However, United’s lack of Champions League football this season could prove to be a stumbling block in their hopes to sign the 26-year-old, while Carlo Ancelotti also reiterated he wants to keep Di Maria.

The Red Devils are also closely linked with Di Maria’s compatriot, Marcos Rojo. The left-back, who played for Argentina at the World Cup, would help solving United’s defensive problems.

However, the chase for the 24-year-old has been complicated by ownership issues, with Sporting only owning 25% of the player but trying to maximise on their profit.

Sporting reportedly rejected an initial £16 million bid from United and as a consequence Rojo had snubbed the club’s training last week, but has since apologized for his actions.
