Manchester United’s record signing Angel Di Maria has revealed why his proposed move to Paris St Germain collapsed in the summer, reports the Daily Mirror.
The Argentina international was expected to move to the French capital before he completed a £59million transfer to Old Trafford.
And the former Real Madrid star has explained why the move to the Ligue 1 champions didn’t end up going through.
He told French TV’s Telefoot this morning: “Going to Paris would have been a good experience.
“I think it was a problem of money. They could not buy any players and I think that is the main reason I did not go to Paris. To play in a French club is something that would please a lot of players but today I play in the Premier League. But you never know.
“Could I join PSG in the future? Yes maybe. I am still young. In football, there is a lot of movement and I don’t know how things will end up.”
And Di Maria said the Old Trafford club’s persistence paid off before becoming the most expensive player to join a Premier League club.
“At the time, there were a lot of clubs interested,” he recalled. “There were a lot of clubs who wanted to have me. They came and went but Manchester appeared and they never went away and because they really wanted me, I went there. That is how it happened.”
