Paris Saint-Germain are considering a £47m ($73m) offer for Manchester United midfielder Angel di Maria, according to the Guardian.

The former Real Madrid man did not have the best debut season at Old Trafford last year and was criticised for his performances after making a £59.7m move to the Premier League.

The report states that United are reportedly willing to negotiate with the French club over a transfer, allowing the Argentine to complete his move to Paris, which failed last season owing to Financial Fair Play (FFP) restrictions forcing PSG's hand in the market. However, the rules have been relaxed his season allowing the Ligue 1 Champions to move back for their top target. The Red Devils are open to allowing DI Maria to move, having brought in Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay already this window.

Manager Laurent Blanc has openly expressed a desire to bring Di Maria to Paris, but insisted that it will be difficult given that he plays for United, who are themselves competing for the best deals in the market and would look to keep holding on to their big stars.

"Yes, I like him [Di María] very much. But at our level, trying to improve your team, you are competing for players who belong to big clubs. And, even if one club has more money, you are not competing alone in the market," Blanc said.

"Don't forget Manchester United paid a fortune to sign him. The decision to relax FFP regulations was favourable to PSG but it happened late in the day. Now it has, new avenues are open to us for recruitment. We fell behind but we'll catch up."

Di Maria is yet to report to training after being given an extended holiday by Louis van Gaal to recover from his exertions at the Copa America, which finished on 4 July. Argentina travelled to the finals, where they were beaten by Chile on penalties.
