Ex-Liverpool captain McAllister slams Man Utd move for Di Maria

Former Liverpool captain Gary McAllister has questioned Manchester United's move for Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria. McAllister says the Argentine's arrival won't address United's weaknesses.

"Is Di Maria a player who can grab the game by the throat and really dominate it?" he remarked to talkSPORT.

"I think he's a player who flits in and out of the game. He's talented, he can hit a pass, he can score a goal, but £70m-odd? It's crazy some of the money that's flying around.

"Bryan Robson, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes - it's that type of player United need. Di Maria is a fantastic technician, Herrera is another, but they're not quite Steven Gerrard or Bryan Robson."
