Angel Di Maria could well be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer.

After the £25million arrival of Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven, The Sun report that the £59.7m British record signing could move to Paris Saint-Germain - the club he seemingly wanted to join in the first place.

Di Maria's struggles this season have been well documented, despite tallying 10 assists in the Premier League the former Real Madrid man has not done enough to win a regular starting place under Louis van Gaal.

In fact, Di Maria has not started a game for Manchester United since the 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup at the start of March.

The arrival of Depay, who also plays on the left wing, apparently spells trouble for Di Maria. The report states that PSG would have to pay £6m up front for a year-long loan deal, pay all of his wages and add a clause that could potentially become permanent.

Di Maria is believed to have preferred a move to Paris over Manchester in the summer, but the French club couldn't afford the fee having already spent £50m on David Luiz.
