Real Madrid winger Di Maria desperate to join LvG's Man Utd

Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria WANTS to join Manchester United. The Daily Star Sunday says Di Maria has rushed an SOS half way across the world to Manchester United's USA camp pleading: Get me out of here.

United know that Di Maria is up for grabs Real's £45m asking price and will get down to business this week to act quickly once new boss Louis van Gaal gives the go ahead.

Paris St Germain are also on full alert but they have dragged their heels much to the early frustration of Di Maria, which is another reason he wants United to come and get him.

The French farce has infuriated Di Maria with the money-no-object club trying to broker a loan deal to get round Financial Fair Play demands after splashing £50 million on Chelsea's David Luiz.

United won't quibble over Real's fee and Van Gaal has enough funds at his disposal to negotiate a straight cash deal.
