It's no secret that Angel Di Maria hasn't enjoyed his first season with Manchester United but he may have played his final game for the Red Devils if reports emerging this morning are true.

It's being reported in France by  Le Parisien that the the Argentina star has verbally agreed a five year deal with PSG.

Paris based newspaper Le Parisien report Di Maria has verbally agreed a five year contract and all that is left is for the two clubs to agree on a fee, expected to be around €60m.

The winger has been given an extended break, along with Marcos Rojo, following the Copa America, but the French side have agreed a fee with the Red Devils to end his short stint in the Premier League according to French reports.

The French champions, who are due to face United in Chicago on July 29, have already outlined a five-year contract to match Di Maria's personal terms at Old Trafford but crucially what remains is whether United will sanction the deal.

Di Maria joined United for a British record of £59.7m last summer but has failed to settle in England and after the signings of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin, with more transfers in the pipeline, manager Louis van Gaal appears prepared to make a loss on the 27-year-old.

Other reports today suggest that United have agreed a fee with the Portuguese side Benfica for Nicolas Gaitan, thought to be €30m (£21m).

A fee of £43m is believed to have been agreed between the clubs, with a deal worth a whopping €280,000 a week on offer for the player who made 32 appearances last season.

France Football yesterday reported a fee had been agreed between the two clubs but PSG and the player couldn't come to a deal about his wages.
