While Manchester United have already been spending a lot of money on trying to improve the poor playing squad that they have at the moment, they have still yet to see a change in fortunes on the pitch, which will lead to them spending even more money. While the club are still being linked to a number of different players all over the world, there is one who looks set to join this week.
It has been largely reported that Manchester United will sign Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria, after being linked to the player all Summer and it looks like they have a former player to thank. Guillem Balague has claimed that former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has convinced Angel di Maria that Manchester United are the right club to join.
Balague said, "Cristiano Ronaldo has played a huge part in the deal. He’s told his Real Madrid teammate that Manchester United is the place to go, that the club will get back to winning ways and that there’s plenty of money available. Di Maria needed convincing and Cristiano Ronaldo helped out to make himself even more of a hero at Old Trafford."
There have been a lot of different fees flying around as to how much Manchester United will actually pay Real Madrid for Angel di Maria but whichever one is true, the club still look set to break the British transfer record. The signing of di Maria would certainly be a positive one but there is still a lot of work to do at Manchester United before they get back to the great club we all know them to be.
