Manchester United paid a massive £60million to lure Angel di Maria to Old Trafford just over a year ago, and the Argentine made a sensational start to life at his new club. However it rapidly went downhill as the season progressed, and it was clear that his head was elsewhere.
Now the winger has claimed he didn’t even want to join Manchester United.
Di María in an interview with Marca: “I never wanted to join Man United and wanted to escape as quickly as possible.”
This smacks of bitterness and sour grapes from Di Maria. If he didn’t want to move to Old Trafford then why did he? The Argentine was hardly held at gunpoint and forced to come here. He could’ve stuck it out at Real Madrid but he chose not to.
At the end of the day this is extremely unprofessional and I’m fairly certain his current side PSG won’t be happy with comments like these. It shows how happy he is to let the fans and teammates down and drop them in a heartbeat.
