Lies & Filth! Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria says links to Manchester United are false [AS]
All paper reports linking Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria with a move to Manchester United in January are crap, according to the man himself.
The Argentinian winger has gone on the record to rubbish all the transfer gossip, and with it another pipe dream of Man United fans to see more quality players arrive at Old Trafford is consigned to the trash bin.
Di Maria told AS:
I do not want to go. I want to win my place in the team. Not me, nor anyone in my camp, has asked for a new contract. What came out was lies.
I have been through some difficult days. I am just thinking about Real Madrid and I am still working hard. I have to keep going and try to earn a place in the team.
Angel Di Maria has scored 6 goals and laid on 8 assists in 14 Real Madrid games this season, including an excellent strike in the 3-2 win at Valencia on Sunday night.
