Di Maria, good luck trying to replicate the last player that broke the British transfer record.

Di María's transfer fee is £59.6m fixed plus £4.3m on adds on. Technically #mufc bought James Rodriguez for Real.

If we sign Vidal as well this week I will dry hump Ed Woodward outside OT whilst licking his bald head and purring like a cat. #MUFC

Opposition fans taking the piss out of the AdM signing. I'd rather £60m be spent on a world class player than interest payment on debt #mufc
