United decided to sell me – Di Maria.


United decided to sell me – Di Maria.

Angel Di Maria has said it wasn’t only his desire to leave Manchester United.

The Argentina winger, 27, suggested that his family were unhappy in the north-west following an attempted break-in at their Cheshire home.

“I’m happy because I know my wife and child will be happy in Paris,” he said.

“It wasn’t just my decision to leave. If I left it was also because they decided to sell me.”

He added: “The three parties agreed. Me, Manchester United and PSG agreed the deal.”

Di Maria moved to Old Trafford from Real Madrid in August 2014 for a British record £59.7m.

His relationship with manager Louis van Gaal reportedly became strained  in the second half of the season as pelvic and hamstring injuries limited his involvement.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: “I’d like to thank him for choosing PSG.

“I know a lot of big clubs were interested because he is a great player.

“He’s already won the Champions League with Real; I hope he can do it with us.”
