According to The Mirror, the Argentina international winger is on his way to Paris Saint-Germain from Manchester United.
Di Maria did not board the flight to the USA to join his United teammates on their pre-season tour.
Bothroyd, who plays for Japanese club Jubilo Iwata at the moment, believes that the former Real Madrid attacker has behaved far worse than Raheem Sterling, who left Liverpool for Premier League rivals Manchester City earlier this summer.

It seems that Di Maria does not want to play for United any more, and perhaps it would be best for the Red Devils if they let him leave.
Sterling was clearly not happy at Liverpool, and the Merseyside outfit made the right decision by selling him to City.
