Angel Di Maria: Man Utd and Bayern Munich in talks over €50m transfer
Manchester United are in talks with Bayern Munich over a deal to offload record signing Angel Di Maria for €50m, according to German newspaper Bild.
The Argentina international arrived at Old Trafford from Real Madrid in a £59.7m deal last summer.
United would be making a considerable loss on that if the €50m (£35m) deal did go ahead. But the report claims that Bayern have spoken to United about Di Maria’s availability and that €50m was the figure quoted.
It is also suggested that Di Maria would want a four-year contract worth €14m-a-year.
Di Maria flopped in his first season at United and Bild claims the fee being demanded by United is “devilishly high” after his poor performances for Louis van Gaal’s side, which saw him dropped for much of last campaign’s run-in.
But Di Maria is under contract until June 2019 and United are under no obligation to sell on the cheap.
