Di Maria Angel-ing for a move to France?

Angel with new wings

Manchester United are ready to cut their losses on record signing Angel di Maria after just one season in the Premier League, with PSG set to swoop in and take the Argentine off their hands.

Despite a promising start, the former Real Madrid midfielder has failed to settle in Manchester and the Daily Mirror reckon that the French giants are prepared to match the £59.7 million the Red Devils splashed out for him in the first place.

United fans have been left scratching their heads following Di Maria’s string of uninspiring performances as memories of his outrageous goal against Leicester earlier in the season quickly fade.

Manchester City need to talk about Kevin

Kevin de Bruyne didn’t quite cut it at Chelsea but that hasn’t deterred Manchester City from offering him another chance in the Premier League.

De Bruyne, arguably the youngest-looking player in professional football at the moment, is tearing it up for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga, and the Daily Mail say it’ll take £40m to convince the German side to let him leave.

Sterling staying put

Speaking of huge fees for young talent, Liverpool are supposedly adamant that no amount of money will convince them to let Raheem Sterling leave the club this summer.

The future of the 20-year old has been the subject of plenty of speculation, with both Arsenal and Manchester City reportedly interested in taking him off Liverpool’s hands.

According to the Daily Star, however, the Reds won’t let him leave, even if he does refuse to put pen to paper on the type of contract that would cause more salivating than an all-day breakfast at McDonald’s.
