The Argentine winger struggled to justify Manchester United splashing out £59.7 million last summer, with his future at Old Trafford now unclear.
United would be reluctant to sell to one of their Premier League rivals, while his reported £280,000-per-week wages would certainly prove a stumbling block for the Gunners, with their highest earners – Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil – pocketing £140,000-a-week.
Nevertheless, the report suggests if Di Maria is acquirable, then the Gunners would be interested, provided a deal fits with their financial regulations.
As much as I would love to see Di Maria at the Emirates, it’s not going to happen. Firstly, united wouldn’t sell him to u. Secondly, he’s going to cost a fortune, both in transfer fees and wages. And last but not least, PSG would blow us out the water with the money they have at their disposal, ending ANY hope of signing Di Maria.
Nice try Daily Mail, but this is one deal that will not go through this summer.
