Angel Di Maria Argentina

Manchester United youngster Tyler Blackett has been speaking about record signing Angel Di Maria.

Angel Di Maria has been a phenomenon since he made the huge £59.7 million switch from Real Madrid to United during the summer transfer window.

In the five Premier League games that he has been involved in the Argentinian has scored three and assisted three more; he was also voted player of the month in his first month at the club.

It's clear to see how influential he is in matches, but what is the new number seven like to train with? 

United's 20-year-old defender Tyley Blacket spoke to Match of the Day Magazine, and revealed how special the new recruit is.

He said: “He’s been amazing."

“He’s one of the world’s best players and the things that he does in training really make us stop and stare."

“The dribbling, the close control, these are things that a lot of players would like to have, but that not everybody’s got. He really is special.”

Red Devil fans will have to wait 11 more days to see their star-studded team back in action; United face West Brom at the Hawthornes on October 20th.

In the mean time Angel Di Maria and United team-mate Marcos Rojo, will be preparing to face Brazil and Hong Kong in two international friendlies this Saturday and next Tuesday.
