Florentino unimpressed by Real Madrid arrival Di Maria

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez isn't doing cartwheels over the capture of Angel di Maria.

Sport says while Jose Mourinho is delighted with the arrival of Di Maria from Benfica, Florentino is struggling to get excited about a player without a big profile.

A transfer fee rising to €31 million based on success is also grating for Florentino.

One of the first things Di Maria can do to win over the president is be more open to the Spanish media. Florentino has complained to confidants of his disappointment with Di Maria's manner during interviews.
