Belgium international midfielder Marouane Fellaini claims that his Manchester United teammate is a “world-class player” and would make an excellent signing for Paris Saint-Germain following reports that the Argentinian winger had put in a transfer request at Old Trafford.
Despite thinking that Di Maria would be a big hit at the Parc des France Fellaini feels he may be better served by remaining at Old Trafford for one more season before trying to leave.
“Angel Di Maria would be a good signing for PSG,” Fellaini told Telefoot. “He is a world-class player.
“He was successful at Real Madrid so he could be successful anywhere. What would I do if I were him? Stay at Manchester United.”
The 27-year-old has seen his form dip since an attempted robbery at his family home that has his wife now wanting to leave England as she no longer feels as it is a safe place for them and their daughter.
When asked earlier this month about the future of Di Maria at Old Trafford, manger Louis van Gaal said he wanted the winger to stay but hinted that the club could be willing to let him go if they received the right offer.
“The manager and the club is always dependable on the opinion of the player himself. The player decides; we shall see what he decides,” said the Dutchman.
“He cannot say that he has had a marvellous season here. The decision is not only to him because now we have a contract so we shall speak always with every player, evaluation, as I always do. Then we speak with each other about the future and that is with every player.
“I am pleased with his attitude, so that is not a problem. I think Di Maria shall stay and he is working very hard.”
