fifa15guide : PSG Looks to Sign Angel Di Maria

According to the Guardian, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have  made an offer for winger Ángel Di María .€40m (£28.5m) to remove him from English giants, Manchester United.

United paid £59.7m to Real Madrid  for Di Maria last year which is less than half  of what PSG is offering  for the Argentine star. However United’s  vice- chairman, Ed Woodward,  is not interested in the offer and is urging PSG to up their bid.

Di Mari made his name at Real Madrid as a superstar and was hoping to do so in the Premier League. Unfortunately, Di Maria struggled to gel with Manchester Untied during his debut year.

Paris Saint-Germain boss, Laurent Blanc, wants to sign the 27-year-old Argentine star, but insists a deal is far from being complete.

“There is a good possibility [he could sign] but there is nothing official,”  said Blanc.

“There is an anticipation he is going to come to the US but as to which jersey he is going to wear, we don’t know yet.”

“If he does make a change hopefully it will be for Paris Saint-Germain. Right now we have to wait because there are two big clubs out there in discussion.”

Di Maria scored 4 goals accompanied by 11 assists for Manchester United last season.

 

fifa15guide : Manchester United Is Working Hard To Sign Ibrahimovic

Manchester United (ManUtd)  is spending quite a bit during this transfer window to secure some trophies in the 2015/16 season. The English juggernaut recently signed German superstar, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and is now looking to sign top striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

ManUtd has been searching the market for a fierce striker who will  bring back the attacking reputation of the club. ManUtd’s manager, Louis van Gaal, is eager to get Ibrahimovic to the Old Trafford , which seems to be very possible.

When Ibrahimovic was  asked about possibly moving to England this summer, the PSG forward replied:

 

“Should I stay in Paris? My future is in the hands of (agent) Mino Raiola.”

According to talkSPORT the Swedish striker is a target for Louis van Gaal and a move to the Premier League could be likely with ManUtd short on striker options.

Robin van Persie is no longer at the Old Trafford  and Radamel Falcao is on  loan with rival club, Chelsea, so signing a great striker is critical for the Premier League club.

Ibrahimovic might be 33 year of age but he is fully capable of finding the back of the net. The PSG hitman  scored 30 goals last season for the French champions and 41 goals the season before.
