Paris St Germain have called time on their pursuit of Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria after being priced out of a deal.

But speaking at Luiz's official unveiling, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi admitted the transfer would not happen, particularly given the club's situation with regards to Financial Fair Play.
He said: "We spoke to Real about Di Maria but he was too expensive."
Manchester United are now reportedly the front-runners to land the 26-year-old should he leave the Bernabeu this month.
