Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world, that is fair to say, and their fans expect them to be linked with the biggest and best players there are, but the latest transfer rumour has shocked even their most ardent of fans.
According to the press, Real Madrid are willing to allow Gareth Bale to leave the club and join Louis van Gaal’s revolution at United but on one condition.
The Champions of Europe want to bring Angel Di Maria back to the club as part of that deal – and after seeing how well Di Maria has done for United, whilst we do not blame Carlo Ancelotti and co, we certainly do not think it is an idea United should be entertaining.
With that in mind, we have come up with five reasons Louis van Gaal should say no to any potential deal between the two sides.
Click on Di Maria to see why we think that a swap deal should NOT happen.
