Angel di Maria: Manchester United ready £100m package for Real Madrid winger - reports
Deal covers £50m transfer fee plus £200,000 a week salary
Manchester United are preparing a £50m bid for Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria, according to reports.
According to the Daily Mail, the deal would be worth £100m in total including a five-year contract.
Paris Saint-Germain had been in the running for the Argentina ace, but their interest in the 26-year-old has cooled.
Following PSG's 2-0 victory over Bastia on Saturday, the French club's president said: "We are in a good place. I am happy with the players we have. For me, it [the window] is over.
"We discussed Angel Di Maria with Real Madrid. He was very expensive and we have stopped discussions."
