Manchester United intensify interest in Argentinian winger Di Maria
According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United have made further enquiries about Benfica winger Angel Di Maria .
The 22 year-old has enjoyed a fantastic season at the Portugese champions, scoring nine goals and contributing sixteen assists in 40 games for Benfica. Di Maria is expected to shine during this summer’s World Cup for Argentina.
Manchester United have long been linked with Di Maria, especially with Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson thought to be looking for a long term replacement for Ryan Giggs. Di Maria is a left-sided player with excellent speed and technique.
Real Madrid are still thought to be favourites to capture Di Maria’s signature, especially as his agent Jorge Mendes has a close relationship with the club and negotiated Cristiano Ronaldo ‘s world record move last summer from Manchester United.
According to the Daily Mail, Benfica value Di Maria at £38m.
