Laurent Blanc has confirmed Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Angel Di Maria from Manchester United. However, Blanc believes it will be tough for PSG to recruit the former Real Madrid winger because of competition from other clubs and the cost of the deal. The Argentina international cost a British record fee of £59.7 million when he moved to Old Trafford last August and United would be reluctant to make a major loss on him.
“We have our priorities,” former United defender Blanc told L’Equipe, “but to strengthen such a team you must target guys who are at big clubs and who are not easy to prise away.
That’s hardest for PSG. “Di Maria, he’s good. We have more freedom, but it remains a difficult project for us because we’re not alone in wanting him. When you see the financial power of the English clubs, they are attacking everyone. Competition is very, very tough.”
