Manchester United winger Angel Di Mario has reportedly gone AWOL.
Argentine Di Maria who cost United £59.7m from Real Madrid last summer, has failed to turn up for pre-season training at United, and Louis Van Gaal when asked about his whereabouts admitted he has no clue:
“I don’t know where he is. You can ask it every week, but I don’t answer that question. Maybe you know? I don’t know.
At Manchester United, we will announce something when it is already done and not when it is not done because it is a process and I have said it many, many times. We have to wait and see.”
Di Maria reportedly has sold his house in the Manchester area, and is now looking to force a move to French champions PSG.
According to Skysports.com, PSG manager Laurent Blanc claims his club are close to completing the signing, although there is still clearly work to be done:
“Manchester United and PSG are two big clubs and negotiations can be difficult, but we are close to the end.”
