Manchester United are reportedly on the brink of landing their first genuinely world class player of the summer. According to various sources, including the Ian Ladyman of the Daily Mail and the Guardian's Daniel Taylor, Argentine international Ángel Di María is set to complete a big move from Real Madrid to Old Trafford. The most significant report comes from Sky, who claim he will put pen to paper on a deal next week:

He was one of the best players on the planet last season, helping Real Madrid to their 10th Champions League title. However, the arrivals of James Rodríguez and Toni Kroos at the club have seen his place in the Merengues' starting lineup called into question. He was previously linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the summer, though the French champions didn't meet Madrid's demands.
