Could this be the Angel that Red Devils need to end their jinx? Angel di Maria finally became a Manchester United player for a British record £59.7million on Tuesday night and immediately claimed he would not have left Real Madrid for any other club.
The Argentine winger had a medical in Manchester on Tuesday and has signed a five-year deal.
United boss Louis van Gaal earlier described Di Maria as “world-class” and there is possibilities to make his debut on Saturday against Burnley in the Premier League.
The fee eclipses the £50m Chelsea paid Liverpool for striker Fernando Torres in 2011.
Di Maria added: “Louis van Gaal is a fantastic coach with a proven track record of success and I am impressed by the vision and determination everyone has to get this club back to the top – where it belongs. I now just cannot wait to get started.”
