Rooney: Di Maria will be value for money at Man Utd

Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney has welcomed new signing Angel di Maria. Rooney has trained alongside the former Real Madrid star and is in no doubt the South American can have an immediate impact on the team's fortunes, starting in Saturday's clash at Burnley.

"You could see the qualities he has as, for me, he is the right person for this club," Rooney told MUTV. "It's great for everybody. It lifts everyone as it shows the intention the club has got to bring in a player of that quality.

"It's a lot of money to spend on one player but he's worth that money. Having seen him in the last couple of days in training, I've seen the quality he has got and he will be a great signing for us. He is great to have in the team."
