Struggling Man United star confirms Old Trafford stay

Manchester United star Angel Di Maria has confirmed that he will not be leaving Old Trafford, despite struggling to adapt to the English game in his debut campaign, Mirror reports.

The 27-year-old joined from Real Madrid for a record breaking fee of £59.7million, but was unable to live up to his price-tag and was eventually dropped by manager Louis van Gaal.

His decline in form paved way for Ashley Young, who became one of the standout performers for United this year, with the player set to be rewarded with a new deal.

However, Di Maria has reassured everyone at the club by revealing that although he did struggle this term, he is ready to return and prove his worth next season.

“I have just finished my first season playing for Manchester United,” he said.

“It was a hard season for me. I think it was hard because it was another country and another league, and this league is harder than the Spanish one. So, I couldn’t adapt myself as I wanted to.

“Now I will play the Copa America and then I will move back to Manchester for next season and do my best there.”

He made 20 league starts and featured an additional seven times from the bench, but only found the net on three occasions.

The Argentina international was linked with moves to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich as well as Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain in recent months.
