Manchester United Star, Di Maria reported Missing

Manchester United Manager, Louis van Gaal, has admitted that he does not know the whereabouts of record signing, Angel Di Maria.

This is coming as the former Real Madrid player edges closer to agreeing a deal with Paris Saint-Germain in the French Ligue 1.

The Punch reports with reference to goal.com that Di Maria failed to report back for pre-season training as planned on July 25, and van Gaal confirmed that he had not boarded a plane to meet his team-mates in San Jose as planned.

The Dutchman further explained that after United went down 2-0 to PSG in a pre-season game in Chicago on Wednesday night, the player went AWOL, while Laurent Blanc, the PSG manager, revealed that talks are at an advanced stage.

Van Gaal, who addressed a press conference after the clash at Soldier Field, simply said: “I don’t know where he is,” but Blanc had more details on the purported move of the 27-year-old to the French capital giants.

He said: “Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are two big clubs, and negotiations can be difficult but we are close to an end.”

Di Maria’s £59.7 million move to Manchester just a little less than a year ago, was seen by many as a lucrative deal by the English giants, but the Argentine has struggled to fully adapt after a promising start and made only 20 starts in the Premier League last season.

Meanwhile, the Manchester United manager has revealed that he will not stay at the club beyond 2017, as he wants to be able to be with his wife.
