United Close in on Di Maria Deal

United Close in on Di Maria Deal

It seems only a matter of time before Angel Di Maria becomes a Manchester United player.

The consensus of opinion, in most media sources is that Manchester United 's board have sanctioned a mega-bucks deal for the Argentine player who wants to leave Real Madrid.

Flicking between various sources it seems that Manchester United will break the British transfer record, for an incoming player, by paying anything up to a reported £65 million to land the Argentine player who performed admirably at the recent World Cup.

It`s also being suggested that Angel Di Maria will wear the #7 shirt, a shirt previously worn by such greats as George Best, Eric Cantona, Ronaldo and David Beckham, meaning he`ll have a lot to live up to.

We`ll confirm when a deal is, as we expect it to be, officially confirmed.

Yes Famous you did say it, and I was certain that we were not signing anymore in August. De Maria would be fantastic, but we still have a defence and a central modfield that needs to adressed. The story has credibility because of the skysports source, but I am not popping the champagne before I see a official picture of him in an United shirt.

Di Maria's impending arrival does raise the interesting question of how are we going to play? It's no secret Van Gaal prefers the 4-3-3 and is only playing the 3-5-2 because it gets the most out of what we've got. To be honest the only way I can see us fitting our attacking talent in is by either upsetting players and forcing them to play in positions I don't like (i'm looking at you Rooney) or copying the City model and playing a 4-2-2-2.

Sometime today, or quite possibly tomorrow, we`re expecting Marouane Fellaini to be charged by the Football Association.
