PSG attacker Draxler warns Man Utd of motivated Di Maria

Julian Draxler admits PSG teammate Angel di Maria is determined to turn it on at former club Manchester United on Tuesday night.

Ahead of the Champions League encounter, Draxler admitted Di Maria had spoken to him about the difficulties he endured at United and said the Argentina star will be ready to produce his best on his return to Old Trafford.

“I was asking him some questions about Manchester United," said Draxler. “I won't tell you what he said, but he will be ready.

“He's a big player. He has a lot of respect for the club, there was nothing terrible in what he said, but it was between me and him.

“He's in good form, we'll need him tomorrow, especially without Edinson Cavani and Neymar, hopefully he'll have a great performance."
