Di Maria misses Manchester United flight to San Jose

The Argentine failed to board a plane headed for United's pre-season camp in San Jose amid links with a move to the French champions.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed that Angel Di Maria missed a flight to join up with the club's pre-season tour of the US, amid reports he is set to join Paris Saint-Germain.

It was revealed earlier in July that Di Maria's agent Jorge Mendes had been in talks with the French champions regarding a move, while PSG boss Laurent Blanc later admitted his club's interest.

The Argentine was due to meet the United squad in San Jose after a delayed summer break due to his participation in the Copa America with his national side.

But Van Gaal admitted in a press conference following Saturday's 3-1 win over Barcelona in Santa Clara that Di Maria had failed to board the plane and had provided no reason for his absence.

"I have heard he was not on the plane. I cannot say anything," he told reporters after his side's 3-1 win over Barcelona. "Marcos Rojo was not on the plane. Di Maria I don't know why."

While Rojo was said to have missed his flight due to passport problems, Di Maria's no-show could speed up his likely departure to PSG.

And the latest developments could well force United's hand as their record £59.7 million signing looks set to seal his exit following a difficult first season with the club in which he started only 20 league games, scoring three goals.
