Manchester United and Arsenal have been handed encouragement in their ongoing pursuit of signing Angel Di Maria after the winger admitted that his future at Real Madrid was uncertain.
The 26-year-old was an integral part of the Spanish capital club's success as Carlo Ancelotti's side went on to win the Copa Del Rey and the Champions League with the latter coming after defeating derby rivals Atletico Madrid in the finals.
Di Maria's form has attracted interest from both the Red Devils and the North London club and Real are reportedly willing to part ways with the winger for £40m this summer.
The South American player is currently with the Argentina squad for the World Cup and has informed his agent that he wants to focus on the summer tournament in Brazil.
"I've asked my agent not to tell me anything about the talks he's having. I don't know what's going to happen with my career," Di Maria explained.
"I don't want to know anything about my future right now. I'm focusing on my national team and not on what's going on elsewhere."
Last month, the Argentine international admitted that he was aware of the growing interest in his services and left it to his representative and club to decide his future.
Di Maria has expressed his desire to continue with the 10-time European champions, but hinted that he could leave Real if the club decides to sell him.
"I am not going to lie, I know that there are clubs that want to sign me and can match Real Madrid's demands but that's up to my representatives and the club. I will stay if the club wants me to stay," the winger stressed.
"I am not thinking about my future now. We will see what Madrid have in mind, whether they want me to stay or leave."
"I am happy at Madrid. I had a great season and always had everybody's support but sometimes you don't have a choice, even when you want to stay yourself," Di Maria concluded.
