BYE OLD TRAFFORD: Angel Di Maria joins PSG

Paris St-Germain have completed the signing of Manchester United midfielder Angel Di Maria for a fee of £44.3m.

The Argentina international leaves United just a year after they paid Real Madrid a British record £59.7m for him.

Di Maria, 27, has signed a four-year deal with the French champions after undergoing a medical in Qatar on Tuesday.

“I am very proud and I can’t wait to wear the colours of Paris St-Germain,” he said.

Di Maria failed to join United on their pre-season tour of America last month, and manager Louis van Gaal had said he “did not know why.”

The former Benfica winger made a strong start to his Old Trafford career, with a goal and an assist in three of his first four games.

But after being played in six different positions, including central midfield and striker, a pelvic injury kept him out for the whole of December 2014.

Reports that he was unsettled in Manchester followed an attempted break-in at Di Maria’s home in Cheshire, in January.

He was then sent off in the FA Cup quarter-final defeat by Arsenal on March 9 and did not start another game until the final match of the campaign at Hull, only to limp off with a hamstring injury after 23 minutes.
