ADM moves on.

What a difference a year makes, this time last Summer the potential signing of Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria has United fans crowing at the prospect of the man who helped Los Blancos achieve La Decima. Today’s announcement by the club that the winger has signed for Paris Saint Germain has been greeted with a mixture of relief, joy and anger – at his attitude rather than the fact he’s leaving- by Reds around the world.

On the surface it looks like a bad deal for United, after all Di Maria is a huge talent- despite his failures- and taking a reported £44 million for a player that cost £59.7 million less than a year since the Reds signed him is hardly a successful move. If we think about it rationally, getting upwards of £40 million for a player who obviously doesn’t want to be anywhere near Old Trafford is good business, especially when we reflect on just how poor Di Maria was towards the end of his time at the club.

United announced the deal on the official website with the statement: “Di Maria is now embarking on a new challenge and the club wishes him all the best for the future.”

    This was the best business deal Ed Woodward did for MU. Superb!,
    Di Maria can be the best player in French League, cause this league is the worst among the worst league in the world. French League is rated the lowest and not among the top 4 best league category (Spain, German, English, and Italy). You can see all French Top players are not playing in French League, so this Clown (Di Maria) can be the best among the worst in the world….

    Angel di maria is a world class footballer who started well at the beginning of the season but depreciate towards the end of the season. Though I espect him not to give up on manu because it was a different league, country, mates, language but with a new start I believe he will pick up his form but rather he gaveup the challenge. I wish him the best in life and we the manu fans are gratefu for his services at the club.
