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.
