Manchester United are interested in signing Benfica ace Angel Di Maria in a £12m deal according to reports.

Sir Alex Ferguson is set to watch the Argentine in action tonight when he comes up against Everton in the Europa League.

The 21-year-old Benfica winger can operate on both the left and right wings and is seen as an addition that can help plug the gap left by Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Real Madrid.

Di Maria was excellent in the demolition of Everton in Portugal last month and a repeat performance tonight could increase the interest already coming from Old Trafford.

Chelsea are also considering a January transfer move for the winger according to the reports.
