Fans’ view: Can Manchester United’s Angel di Maria turn his form around?

by Ben Topliss

James Rodriguez, Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. Only four players in the history of football have commanded a higher transfer fee than Angel di Maria, who joined Manchester United in a £59m move last summer.

The Argentine had seemed to justify the huge fee with a blistering start to life at Old Trafford, scoring three goals in five games and winning the club’s Player of the Month award for September.

However, Di Maria’s form has suffered a sharp dip since the start of 2015 and he has looked anything but a £59m player in recent games.

His performances will be a source of concern for Louis van Gaal and we asked our Twitter followers whether they think Di Maria can turn it around:

It seems as if the majority of United fans think Di Maria is too good a player not to turn his form around.

He grabbed his eighth assist of the season after setting up Ander Herrera’s strike against Swansea City last weekend but much more will be expected of him as United head into a tough run of fixtures. Di Maria will be looking to get on the scoresheet when United face Sunderland on Saturday.
