The speculation of Angel Di Maria leaving the white club became more and more of a done deal after the World Cup and with the signing of Colombian sensation James Rodriguez. Di Maria helped Real Madrid achieve “la decima” and the King’s Cup last season. Di Maria was an essential part of Real Madrid with his fantastic assists and goals. The real reasons for his departure are unknown, but in a letter posted by Spanish newspaper Marca, he states that he did not want to leave the white club just yet that leaving was not mainly his decision but rather the decision of others. Truth is, that club owner Florentino Perez gave much more importance to the signing of James Rodriguez right after the World Cup. Real Madrid apparently did not offer Di Maria a new contract which saddened the midfielder. Di Maria received a spectacular ovation from the fans at the Santiago Bernabeu during the first leg of the Spanish Supercup after he substituted one of his team mates which ended up being his last game wearing the Real Madrid jersey.
Angel Di Maria is now a Red Devil and will wear the famous number 7 for Manchester United. This number has been worn by top figures such as Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Michael Owen, and Eric Cantona to name a few. Manchester United signed Angel Di Maria for five years.
Under Louis Van Gaal Manchester United have started the season with two points, or in other words they have lost one match and tied two others. But during the Capital One Cup in the second round, Manchester United got thrashed 4-0 by M.K Dons, a game that made many Manchester United fans question Coach Louis Van Gaal’s philosophy, let’s recall that last season Manchester United finished in seventh place of the Premier League under Coach David Moyes. The hope of many Manchester United fans is that Angel Di Maria will help bring glory back and perhaps even some trophies and titles.
Real Madrid lost a very valuable player, Angel Di Maria is without a question one of the best midfielders in the world and he proved himself many times with the white club and this past summer during the World Cup. The fans loved Di Maria he brought something new to every game and always gave it his all for the Real Madrid jersey. The only thing that fans should wish him is success in his new club.
At the end of the day, the sport itself changes constantly, players are traded or sold during every transfer window it’s something normal, let’s also remember that every team is a business at the end of the day as well.
