After being involved in discussions with Real Madrid over the last number of weeks, and looking like being on the cusp of closing the deal, PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi surprisingly revealed that they’ve now pulled out of a move for Angel Di Maria.
At David Luiz’s presentation today, Al-Khelaifi explained that he and his partners had been in discussions, and that they consider Di Maria top player, but, ‘for me, he was very expensive, so we stopped the discussions.’
Too expensive? This is a guy who paid 50 million for David Luiz. British Pounds.
