We said earlier that sources were increasingly in agreement, and another figure that seems like he could well be coming to Manchester United is Angel di Maria, whom Ian Ladyman, a very reliable and clued-up journalist, has named as being a key target.
He claims, on the back page of the Daily Mail tomorrow, that United will launch a £100m bid (inclusive of wages) for the Real Madrid star.
It seems that a move is very likely to be made, but TBB aren't sure. If we're moving back to 4-3-3, then fine, but it brings back the old problems of trying to placate Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. If we're sticking with a 3-5-2, it's hard to see exactly where he fits in. We wrote about this at length in a feature earlier today.
On the other hand, he is clearly a world-class player and could be devastating and provide some pace to the team. Make of it what you will. Some defenders and midfielders would also be nice, however.
