Angel Di Maria Opens Up On His Time At Manchester United

share on:

Angel di Maria has revealed that he intended to see out his contract when he joined Manchester United in 2014.

The Argentina winger penned a five-year deal when he made a record-breaking move from Real Madrid but he left for PSG after just one year at Old Trafford.

Spanish newspaper Marca asked Di Maria if he ever thinks about returning to Real Madrid or heading to Barcelona and he replied: “I do not think it, truthfully, not because I do not want to say it. But many things can happen in life.

“I thought that I was going to fulfil my contract at United and I left after a year, so therefore I do not know what can happen tomorrow. One always has his head where it is and then you see.”

Di Maria has returned to form with PSG, scoring 10 Ligue 1 goals in 29 appearances during the 2015/16 season, although his performances this year have been disappointing, bagging just one league strike in 19 games.

Di Maria also revealed how United was the best offer for both him and Real Madrid, and that he hopes to meet his former club in the Champions League final.

“No, I left when I went to Manchester because it was the best offer for Madrid and for me,” the 28-year-old continued.

“When I arrived in Paris and touched the Madrid I already said that I had the feeling that sooner or later we would touch. And it was in the group stage. It was nice to go back to the Bernabéu and say hello to all the people. 

“Hopefully I can eliminate Barcelona and I’ll play Madrid again in this Champions League.”
