PSG winger Draxler: Di Maria ready to star against Man Utd

PSG winger Julian Draxler says Angel Di Maria will need to step up against his former club Manchester United on Tuesday night.

The Parisians will be without attackers Edinson Cavani and Neymar for the Champions League last-16 first leg clash.

"I was asking him [Di Maria] some questions about Manchester United," Draxler said.

"I won't tell you what he said but he will be ready for tomorrow.

"He's a big player. He has a lot of respect for the club [United], there's nothing terrible in what he said but it was between me and him, so I won't tell you right now.

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