Man United fans slam Thiago Silva for claiming Angel Di Maria is joining a ‘bigger club’ in PSG [Tweets]

Which club is bigger: Manchester United or PSG?

Historically, Man United undoubtedly have the edge over their French-based counterparts, as the Red Devils have won the league 20 times, the European Cup/Champions League three times, and the UEFA Cup once.

As for PSG, the Parisians have won Ligue 1 just five times, while their only European trophy was winning the Cup Winners’ Cup back in 1995-96.

PSG’s Brazilian defender Thiago Silva has sidestepped the facts, however, to remark today that Angel Di Maria is joining a ‘bigger club’ when he switches from Old Trafford to the Parc de Princes.

Silva has told the press:

People now need to respect PSG as one of the big clubs in Europe. Real Madrid and Barcelona are probably on another level, but after that if you join PSG you are you probably taking a step up.

We went further than any English clubs in Europe last year.

As for Di Maria, he is poised to join PSG for £44.5m having spent just one season at Manchester United.

Supporters of the Red Devils have baulked at the comments from Silva, and they have been expressing their anger on Twitter.

Below are the best tweets on Thiago Silva’s claim that PSG are a bigger club than Man United.
