Jose Mourinho has stated had he been in charge of United earlier, he would not have sold Di Maria or Chicharito.
Di Maria arrived at Old Trafford in 2014, but failed to settle under Louis van Gaal in his debut epl season.
The Argentine was sold to PSG a year after and Mourinho is unhappy with the premature sale of the midfielder.
“When I first arrived, I found a sad club. Manchester United sold players that I never would have sold, and bought players I never would have bought,” he explained to the BBC.
“I would never have sold Di Maria, Chicharito or Danny Welbeck, never, no chance.”
