Manchester United manager, Louis Van Gaal has conceded that he doesn’t know the whereabout of record signing, Angel Di Maria who is on the verge of completing a move to Paris Saint Germain.
Di Maria was expected to reunite with his club in California on Saturday after he got some time off as a result of the Copa America. He, however, missed his flight and has failed to report to the club.
“You can ask that every week, but it is the same answer,” Van Gaal said in his news conference. “Maybe you know? I don’t know that either.”
United are locked in talks with PSG about selling the former Real Madrid winger, who became the most expensive player in the history of English football when Van Gaal paid £59.7 million for him in 2014. The French champions’ manager Laurent Blanc again voiced his confidence that a deal will be completed soon.
“You know negotiations are in tandem,” Blanc said in his news conference. “But as United and Paris Saint Germain are both big clubs, that can be difficult. But we feel we are close to the end.”
