Di Maria completes PSG switch, leaves Man Utd

Another Argentine signing that hasn't quite worked out for Man Utd, as Angel di Maria officially confirmed his switch to Paris Saint-Germain, just a year after he joined the Red Devils.

PSG have paid Man Utd £44.3m (63 million euros), £15m down on the £59.7m British record fee that United paid for the Argentine playmaker last season.

Di Maria started his career at United well, but was shunted across various positions and then suffered a pelvic injury late last year. Reports started to emerge that he was unsettled in Manchester and an attempted break in at his Cheshire house didn't help matters.

Di Maria did not tour with United in their pre-season games in the United States
