Angel Di Maria will then complete a Manchester United medical and personal terms to bring him to Old Trafford on a five-year-deal.
United boss Louis van Gaal wouldn’t comment on the transfer, after the Sunderland match he said:
“I cannot say anything about transfers, you have to understand that
“When a transfer has been finished then we can say something. But now you have to wait and see. When the moment is there Manchester United shall announce it.
“It is not only Di Maria, maybe Vidal or Messi! We are a big club. I think the club always has to announce, and when we think it is the right time we will come to you and say, ok, we have bought this player or that player. At this time we can’t say anything but I like Di Maria.”
