British record signing Angel Di Maria has stated that he will be back at Manchester United next season, despite continued interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

The £59.7million winger endured a tough season at Old Trafford despite a bright start following his move from Manchester United.

His only start after 4 March came on the final day of the season against Hull City, where he was taken off with a hamstring injury in less than half an hour;United boss Louis van Gaal preferring Ashley Young in the final months of the season.

But the 27-year-old has insisted he will be back at the club next season, despite PSG reportedly making him their top target this summer.

"I have just finished my first season playing for Manchester United," he told The Sun.

"It was a hard season for me. I think it was hard because it was another country and another league, and this league is harder than the Spanish one. So, I couldn't adapt myself as I wanted to.

"Now I will play the Copa America and then I will move back to Manchester for next season and do my best there."
