Angel di Maria arrives at Carrington to complete €59.7m Manchester United move

by Sam Peoples

Angel di Maria is now at Manchester United’s training ground Carrington to complete a £59.7m move from Real Madrid.

Di Maria, 26, visited Carrington yesterday evening to undergo a medical after landing on a private jet from Madrid and with a £59.7m fee already agreed, an announcement is expected this afternoon to unveil Di Maria as a United player.

The £59.7m fee for Di Maria will eclipse United’s current transfer record of £37.1m for Juan Mata back in January.

Di Maria will become the fourth arrival at United this summer after Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo but more are expected in the final few days of the transfer window.

Although Di Maria’s signing would not fix United’s underlying problems in both defence and midfield, it’s a major coup for United to sign a player who was Man of the Match in 2013 Champions League final.
