Paris Saint-Germain have revealed they cannot afford to sign Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria, opening the door for Manchester United to come in for a swoop, Mirror reports.
The Ligue-1 champions have been hit by UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations, which have limited the amount they can spend after they splashed £50million on Chelsea defender David Luiz.
PSG have therefore pulled out of the race for the Argentine, being unable to negotiate a deal under the FFP spending cap.
Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has openly admitted the transfer for the Madrid star was “too expensive.”
This has paved the way for Man United, who have been heavily linked with a move for Di Maria over the course of the summer.
The United hierarchy still need to agree on a fee for the 26-year-old, as well as negotiating personal terms after his preference to move to the French capital fell through.
Angel di Maria had a stand-out campaign last season, scoring 11 goals and providing 26 assists in all competitions.
