Boost for United as £60m star WILL play at Old Trafford next season

Manchester United have received a boost ahead of the summer transfer window as Argentinian winger Angel Di Maria is set to stay at the club next season, according to the Sunday People.

The British record signing joined United from Real Madrid for £59.7 million last summer but hasn’t reached the levels he would have hoped for in his first Premier League season.

He has scored three goals with ten assists in 24 league appearances under Louis Van Gaal this season but has been linked with a move away from the club this summer.

An attempted gunpoint burglary at his home in Prestbury, Cheshire shook Di Maria up in February and left him unsettled in Manchester.

But he has since moved to the city centre in an apartment and is now in discussions to extend his lease on the property for another year, suggesting he will spend at least one more season with Manchester United.

The 27-year-old attacker came on in Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Chelsea but has not started a game since the FA Cup clash with Arsenal in which he was sent off.

United’s loss at Stamford Bridge ended a six-game win streak but the Red Devils have improved as the season has gone on and the club, as well as Di Maria, will hope to kick on further next year.
