The Sun have splashed their back page on Tuesday claiming that Angel Di Maria is free to leave Real Madrid to join Manchester United.
United, who lost their opening Premier League fixture at home going down 2-1 to Swansea, are widely thought to be in need of fresh recruits before the transfer window slams shut at the end of the month, and throughout the summer the Argentine attacking midfielder has been said to be on the radar at Old Trafford.
In the latest report from The Sun, “Angel can fly to United”.
The Sun take their lead from Carlo Ancelotti’s press conference on Monday, in which the Los Blancos boss said:
I’m not entering into the issue about Di Maria, because I’ll lose focus on the game [against Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup].
I do not know what he has decided, I just know that he is ready to play, and until August 31 he will be here in principle. If from there he stays or is no longer here, we will think about it later.
