MANCHESTER United fans fear that £60million signing Angel di Maria is heading out of the club.

The Old Trafford club are in FA Cup action at home to Arsenal tonight (kick-off 7.45pm), with United boss Louis van Gaal admitting that Champions League qualification was far more important than landing the FA Cup this season.

"A trophy would be fantastic, it's fantastic for the players and the manager but our role in our first year together is to win a place in the Champions League," says the Dutchman.

But it seems likely that di Maria will not be around for a Champions League battle next season as with fresh reports of a summer move to Paris St Germain.

The story has moved on over the weekend after it was revealed that di Maria had put his house up for sale, the Argentina star reportedly unsettled after a recent violent break-in.

PSG almost signed di Maria last summer but the deal fell through due to UEFA rules on Financial Fair Play. Di Maria has struggled in recent weeks, the star having been substituted in his most recent appearances, and while he has publicly stated his desire to stay at the club, reports that his house is up for sale has revived talk of that move to Paris.
