Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria is due to complete his Manchester United medical this morning. United are understood to have agreed a £59.7million fee with Real for Di Maria.

United have made no official comment on the matter, but it is understood the agreed fee between the Red Devils and Real will eclipse the British record £50million Chelsea paid to Liverpool for Fernando Torres in 2011.

Should he sign, the 26-year-old cannot be involved in United's Capital One Cup tie at MK Dons on Tuesday night, but could be set for a debut in Saturday's Barclays Premier League match at Burnley.
