Manchester United have finally brought the long-running transfer saga involving Angel di Maria to a conclusion, after confirming the midfielder's move to Paris Saint-Germain has now been officially completed.

The Argentine international largely struggled to settle in English football following a club-record £59.7m ($92.6m) switch from Real Madrid in August 2014 and his departure was announced via a message relayed to followers via the club's official Twitter account. It read: "#mufc can confirm the sale of Angel di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain is complete. We wish him well for the future."

United stopped short of offering any further detail but a similar message from PSG reveals the player has signed a four-year deal at the Parc des Princes. A press conference to officially unveil Di Maria has been scheduled for 5.30pm GMT.

Unsurprisingly, no official figure has yet been disclosed by either club but The Guardian believes the deal to take Di Maria to the French capital is worth approximately £44.3m. "I am very happy to join Paris Saint-Germain," he said before the move was announced, according to Sky Sports. "What I know about PSG is that they are a team who have won all possible titles in France last season. They're very important.

"They made it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, so my objective was to arrive to Paris and to help them through the quarter-final barrier, because they have struggled in the past two seasons. I will try to do the best I can to help the club in those objectives and reach the final stages of the Champions League."

Di Maria is the fifth player to be sold by United for a fee so far this summer. Nani and Robin van Persie have both joined Fenerbahce, much-loved Brazilian Rafael has signed for Lyon and striker Angelo Henriquez leaves permanently for Dinamo Zagreb after failing to make a single first-team appearance at Old Trafford.

Wealthy PSG, meanwhile, have now bolstered their squad with four new signings ahead of their bid to win a fourth consecutive Ligue 1 title. Serge Aurier signed from Toulouse in April, while Laurent Blanc has also moved to secure the services of goalkeeper Kevin Trapp and Tottenham midfielder Benjamin Stambouli since then.
