Transfer Bin: Argentine international linked with United exit, just months after joining club

Angel Di Maria

Angel Di Maria has been linked with a Manchester United exit just months after joining the Red Devils; a report destined for the transfer bin.

The Daily Star are providing the comedy this morning, with the suggestion that Manchester United's Angel Di Maria is eyeing up 'sensational move' away from the club, just a matter of months after completing his British-record breaking £59.7million switch to Old Trafford.

Di Maria himself has recently revealed that Paris Saint-Germain's financial problems prevented him from leaving Real Madrid for the Ligue 1 champions this summer, and despite opting to leave the Champions League winners for a club who failed to qualify for continental football this season, he is convinced he made the correct decision.

In a recent interview with French TV station Telefoot, the Argentine international addressed reports linking him with a switch to the Parisian outfit during the summer window.

The 26-year-old gave a mature showing, and when quizzed about his future, he was quoted as saying the following, "you never know, there is a lot of movements in football. You can never predict where you’re going to play." A level-headed answer, from a player who probably hadn't been expecting to leave Madrid during the summer window. 

Nonetheless, the Star have taken these quotes and made a mountain out of a molehill; sensationalism at its finest. In reality, Di Maria is going nowhere.

The Argentine has quickly established himself as the centerpiece of Louis van Gaal's Manchester United, and even from his early performances, it's clear to see he will have a long and successful career at Old Trafford. You get a sense that the 26-year-old is one of few players capable of matching the impact made by former fan-favourite Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Already he has scored three goals and set up five more as the Red Devils sit seventh in the Premier League table. He has made a lightning start to his Red Devils career, and as Van Gaal further shapes his team into the 'Gaalacticos' mould, his form should only improve.
