£59.7m. That’s some fee. Angel di Maria cost Manchester United a club record and British record amount last summer, and much was expected of him. The Argentine had been Man of the Match in the Champions League Final just months before, before he then helped his nation to the World Cup Final. Some has even suggested he out-performed Cristiano Ronaldo in the white shirt at the back end of last season.
However, it’s not been a cakewalk for Di Maria at Old Trafford, with the attacking midfielder having really struggled to live up to the hype… or has he? As the stats show, he’s actually be excellent in terms of laying on assists, with his tally of 10 this term the fifth highest number in a Premier League season from a Man United player. Wow!
And with seven games to go, there’s even a chance he could surpass David Beckham’s all-time high of 15!
