Rob Harris, a reporter from the Associated Press, dropped an interesting tweet as Manchester United unveiled new signing Angel Di Maria at Old Trafford.
After completing his transfer from the Santiago Bernabeu, Di Maria posted a letter onto the website of Spanish paper Marca in which the Argentine said he didn’t want to leave Real Madrid.
Di Maria wrote:
Unfortunately today I have to go, but I want to make clear that this was never my desire.
After winning “La Decima” I went to the World Cup with the hope of receiving a new contract, which never came.
Hala Madrid! And until forever!
According to Harris, journalists were banned by Manchester United’s media department from asking any uncomfortable questions about Di Maria’s letter during his unveiling.
