Angel Di Maria has apologised to Manchester United fans following his transfer to PSG.

The Argentina international left Old Trafford just 12 months after his British transfer record arrival.

The £44m switch followed a difficult year in Manchester in which after a promising start the 27-year-old struggled to get into Louis van Gaal's starting XI.

Di Maria ended his time at Manchester United with a switch to the French capital for £44m, but expressed his disappointment that things didn't work out as he had hoped at Old Trafford in an open letter to fans.

"I write this note to thank all the Manchester United family for the great support received during the year I've been part of this Club," Di Maria wrote.

"I'm aware things didn't work as we all expected and believe me, I feel really sorry about it."


The former Real Madrid player apologised again.

"I can guarantee you it was not for trying. I did my best but football is not like maths: often a lot of things out of our control affect the way we feel and the way things turn out.

"I am sorry it did not work out as I would have wished in this amazing huge club."

Di Maria will wear the No 11 jersey at his new club.
