PSG manager Laurent Blanc has confirmed that the club are chasing Manchester United star Angel Di Maria, but, the move is complicated due to other big clubs chasing the player too with reports in press recently having linked the player to FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
PSG were reportedly interested in signing Di Maria last summer from Real Madrid, but were unable to do so because of the restrictions placed on them by UEFA for breach of FFP rules.
With UEFA lifting those sanctions on the French side, PSG have reignited their interest in bringing Di Mar a to the French capital.
PSG chase complicated by FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich interest.
PSG manager Laurant Blanc has said that other clubs are interested in the Manchester United winger with FC Barcelona recently linked with the player along with Bayern Munich.
Sky Deutschland have reported that Bayern Munich are interested in signing a winger as Pep Guardiolaa s side suffered during the latter stages of their campaign last season after Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery were ruled out following their injuries.
Blanc confirms PSG interest
“The case of Di Maria is very complicated because I repeat once again, he is a player who plays for a very, very big English club which purchased him last year,” Blanc said. “If eventually the player left, you can expect that other big clubs would also be interested in him. PSG are one of them.”
“It’s going to be a tough negotiation provided that the player leaves. We are following this case with great interest.”
Di Maria is thought to be unsettled at Manchester United with the player saying he was less than pleased with warming the bench at the club.
a Yes. For me, and my family. Because not everything goes as I want, because I dona t play. Because I came with an intention and end up on the bench.a
The very latest report from France claim that the player has agreed personal terms with PSG and it remains to be seen how much truth is in these reports.
But, one thing is for sure, PSG want him and the player has made quite a few noises about being unhappy as quoted above . With the manager also publicly coming out and stating that the player is finding life difficult at Manchester United, it does seem his days could be numbered at Old Trafford.
