Real Madrid have set their asking price for Angel di Maria - £40 million.

The Daily Star says Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have been told they will have to stump up a staggering £40m to land Argentine star Di Maria by Real Madrid.

Real had previously said none of their Galacticos would be leaving the club this summer, but their stance has softened as they sense a bidding war on the horizon.

All three Premier League clubs have made enquiries for Di Maria since the end of last season.
