Manchester United are set to hand Angel di Maria a contract worth €225,000 per week, after reaching an agreement with the Real Madrid winger.

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti today revealed that Di Maria is leaving the Bernabeu and attended training this morning to bid farewell to his team-mates.

According to Spanish outlet La Sexta, Di Maria will sign a contract which will earn him €225,000 per week at Old Trafford, with his medical at the club set for early next week.

Manchester United are thought to be paying over €75m for the former Benfica winger, with a number of add-ons included in the deal.


Di Maria asked to leave Real Madrid recently after growing disillusioned following the club signing James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos.


The winger will become the second Argentine to join Manchester United in quick succession following the signing of Marcos Rojo from Sporting Lisbon.

The 26-year-old will hope to quickly live up to his transfer fee at Old Trafford.
