Spain’s pain is Man United’s gain as Argentinian ace shows his worth

What a signing Angel di Maria has proved to be for Manchester United.

While eyebrows were raised at the £59.7 million fee, the Argentine – signed from Real Madrid in the summer – has been an instant hit at Old Trafford.

As this stat shows, the nifty winger is second only to Lionel Messi in La Liga assists for 2014 – which shows just how much a loss he’s been to Spanish football.

Quite incredible that, almost another half a season into the current La Liga campaigns and, still, the former Benfica wizard still sits pretty amongst some of the game’s finest despite heading for England back in the summer.

It looks like Spain’s pain is most certainly United’s gain.
