Although he has been linked with massive money moves in the past, we at TFF had wondered what all the fuss was about.
Because, although Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria had shown the odd spark of brilliance, he seemed miles away from the finished product. The player that we regularly viewed lacked consistency and spent too much time on the deck.
But, in spite of Real Madrid signing Gareth Bale, last season Angel di Maria somehow had his best campaign for the club.
He finally looked worthy of the hype. But there have still been rumours about his potential departure and The Metro today suggests that he could well be on the move to The Premier League.
Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria, who is reportedly a target for Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United, has admitted he does not know what team he will be playing for next season – and does not want to think about it until after the World Cup.
I don’t want to know anything about my future right now – I’m focusing on my national team and not on what’s going on elsewhere.
A tenuous link perhaps but you could easily imagine the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal vying for his attention if he decided to move on.
Manchester United, in particular, need extra quality out wide and this guy looks as if he’s finally able to deliver on a regular basis.
Whether he is robust enough to come into The Premier League and be a real success remains to be seen. But it would no doubt be an exciting signing for Arsenal or Manchester United fans.
