A former target of Manchester United's, Angel di Maria was seemingly set to switch Real Madrid for Paris Saint-Germain in a blockbuster £70 million transfer yet, after training away from the first-team squad, Angel di Maria was reunited with the Los Blancos roster and appeared happy at work.
Di Maria may be deemed surplus to requirements despite a storming La Liga season and strong World Cup after Estadio Santiago Bernabeu welcomed Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez to the club.
Real may also need to balance the books to comply with UEFA Financial Fair Play regulations as Kroos and Rodriguez combined cost €105 million - and selling off di Maria for the aforementioned price could help balance their spending.
PSG were not the only party interested in his signature, however, considering Louis van Gaal's recent comments about being seemingly uncomfortable to over-spend on any individual player, would the Dutchman really want to equal any £70 million offer for the Argentine?
In the photographs above, di Maria can be seen joking with Cristiano Ronaldo before doing stretching exercises with Sami Khedira, who is also linked with a summer exit.
