Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Angel Di Maria transfer reports

Angel Di Maria Kick

Arsenal have been named as surprise suitors for Manchester United's Angel Di Maria.

Arsenal have been linked with a stunning if yet unlikely move for Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria, by The Mail.

The Argentine international's future has been the subject of speculation after an underwhelming debut season at Old Trafford, and he is a long term target for the Gunners.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told The Guardian earlier in 2015 that he attempted to sign Di Maria when the player was just 17-years-old and had an agreement in place, only to be denied after a work permit application was refused.

Di Maria went onto establish himself at Benfica, won the Champions League with Real Madrid, and earned a British record mve to Manchester United last summer.

It is claimed Arsenal want to play him in a dazzling forward line of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, all playing behind a central striker.

Mesut Ozil this week himself named Di Maria in his dream XI, as reported The Star, but a transfer is far from straightforward.

The Gunners would have to convince Manchester United to sell to them, they would need to submit a huge bid, and make the winger their highest earning player.

The Mail's claims have rightly been met with scepticism from Arsenal fans. Here is a look at what supporters had to say on Twitter...
