Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly agreed a deal with Manchester United for the transfer of Angel Di Maria to the Parc des Princes this summer, according to French publication L'equipe.
Di Maria, who joined United just last summer in a British-record deal, failed to adapt to English football despite a blistering start to his career at Old Trafford. His lack of form and influence in games eventually saw him drop to the bench and lose his place in the team to Ashley Young.
The French club have been on the trail of the Argentine winger since last summer, but failed to sign him due to Fianancial Fair Play restrictions, but following a difficult season in the Premier League, he is reportedly ready to swap Manchester for the French capital.
Laurent Blanc had admitted recently that a deal for the former Real Madrid star was close. It is now claimed that the club have agreed a €63m (£44.4m, $69.3m) deal with the Red Devils to take the Argentine to Ligue 1.
"Manchester United and PSG are two big clubs and negotiations can be difficult, but we are close to the end," Blanc said, as quoted on Sky Sports.
It is believed that Di Maria has penned a four-year contract until the summer of 2019, and will earn just over €10m-a-season to play for the French champions.
According to RMC Sport, the Argentine international, is set to arrive in Paris on Monday (3 August) or Tuesday to undergo his medical and finalise the deal and put pen-to-paper on his contract.
However, according to the Mirror, Louis van Gaal is said to be unwilling to let the winger walk out on the club without any consequences and the report claims that he will be made to sweat over his move to Paris, despite the move being close to completion.
The Dutch manager is said to be furious with the winger for disrespecting the 20-time English champions by not showing up for their pre-season tour of the United States.
Di Maria, who was supposed to join the Red Devils for the second leg of their pre-season tour of the US on 25 July, failed to turn up and the manager was at a loss of words to explain his absence.
It is believed that the club have fined the Champions League winner £360,000, but are said to be looking into the possibility of increasing the punishment for the player.
