Angel di Maria could finally be heaving a sigh of relief, his career might be getting a boost from Laurent Blanc as an escape route out of Old Trafford this summer, Paris Saint-Germain seem to have step up their interest in the winger.
The Argentine international has endured a tough first season at Manchester United since joining for a British record fee of £59.7m from Real Madrid in August.
The French champions narrowly missed out on signing the 27-year-old attacker last summer and boss Laurent Blanc has identified Di Maria as his top transfer target during the close season.
Despite featuring in 26 Premier League matches this term, Di Maria has struggled to reach the performance levels which made United secure the Champions League winner’s services.
And now, according to French newspaper Le Parisien, Blanc’s side are in pole position to re-enter the race for the former Benfica star.
PSG want Di Maria as a direct replacement for Ezequiel Lavezzi, who could reportedly leave Parc des Princes this summer.
