Transfer Balls: Manchester United want to sell Angel di Maria for £35m – any takers?
Transfer Balls: Are Bayern Munich are looking to hire Manchester United’s Angel Di Maria?
The Evening Standard cites a report on Germany’s Bild saying that Bayern are unwilling to meet United’s £35million price-tag, even though it would see the Red Devils take a huge hit on the £59.7million they originally paid for the 27-year-old last summer.
It looks like Manchester United want shot of the player.
But Bayern Manager Pep Guardioloa says he’s not intersted. The Indy reports:
“I don’t have to watch Argentina games, because I know him and his style of playing very well,” Guardiola told reporters.
“United did not pay so much money for nothing, he is a great player. Although such transfer fees are sometimes really crazy.” Angel Di Maria was on the double for Argentina Di Maria scored twice to help Argentina reach the final of the Copa America
When asked if he was interested in signing Di Maria, Guardiola replied: “No.”
Does Di Maria want to leave?
It was only on June 24 that the Daily Mail said “Angel di Maria vowed to stay at Manchester United and make a success of his British record £59.7million transfer”. That ‘vow’ echoed the Daily Telegprah’s report on June 5.
And if you believe the Daily Mirror Di Maria has no truck with Bayern, the paper reporting on June 2: “Manchester United’s Angel Di Maria RULES OUT transfer to Barcelona or Bayern Munich”.
But also on June 2, the Daily Express said Di Maria did want to play for PSG: “Angel Di Maria demands Manchester United exit for £42.5m Paris Saint-Germain switch.”
Is is staying or going?
