Manchester United summer signing Angel Di Maria has claimed that after his spell at Old Trafford he just want to return to his boyhood side Rosario Central, playing down recent reports that Paris Saint-Germain will renew their efforts to secure his services in the summer.

The Ligue 1 side were heavily linked with the Argentinian international last summer since it became clear he wanted to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, PSG were unable to secure his services due to the Uefa's Financial Fair Play regulations, giving United a clear path to sign the Argentine for a club record fee of £59.7m.

With reports insisting the Ligue 1 side are still monitoring his situation, Di Maria recently refused to rule out a future move to PSG.

But the Argentine has now claimed during an interview with Fifa website that the next step in his career will eventually be to return to his homeland.

"The next step will be to return to Rosario Central, another giant of the game! Truth be told, I've played for Europe's biggest clubs, competed in two World Cups and won the Champions League," Di Maria said.

"I represented Real Madrid and before that was with Benfica, which, while a slightly smaller club than Madrid, is a giant of Portuguese football. Now I'm with another massive club in Manchester United. When I finish here, I think it might be time to return to Argentina. Hopefully that happens."

Even though the former Real Madrid star is struggling to make the impact expected under Louis van Gaal having scored just three Premier League goals, he insists he is really happy at Old Trafford.

"[I am] very well. The weather is the only thing... it doesn't help a lot. But I'm very content here. The people have a lot of affection for me, which is the most important thing. It's what I value most, and I have that here."
