Manchester United fans better brace themselves for good news after BBC Sport claimed that Angel Di Maria has asked to leave Real Madrid.
The Argentine winger has been linked with a move away from the La Liga side all summer after the Champions League winners signed James Rodriguez and it seems that Di Maria is not willing to play second fiddle to anyone.
Manager Carlo Ancelotti has made it very clear that he would ideally like to keep the winger at the club but the Real Madrid board only see pound signs when they look at the winger now – and 50 million of them to be exact.

“The player has to look for a solution. If when the transfer market closes he’s still here, he will work with us like last season and there will be no problem.”
