Angel Di Maria has PSG medical in Doha
04 Aug 2015 18:06
Angel di Maria's move from Manchester United to Paris St Germain moved a step closer as the Argentina winger underwent a medical in Doha.
-
The Aspetar Sports Hospital in Qatar posted pictures on Twitter of Di Maria ahead of his medical. The 27-year-old was given permission to fly to Qatar for talks with PSG officials after United agreed a €63m (£44.3m) fee with the French champions for the midfielder.

United signed Di Maria from Real Madrid for £59.7million last summer, but after an encouraging start his form dipped drastically and he only started one of the final ten games of last season.
-
The former Benfica winger was left unsettled after an attempted burglary on his Cheshire home in February. Since then, Di Maria and his family have been living in a city-centre apartment in Manchester owned by former United defender Phil Neville.
-
Di Maria said as recently as June that he wanted to stay at United, but it became apparent that he had his heart set on a move to the French capital in the last couple of weeks.
-
The Argentinian was due to report for duty during the second leg of United's pre-season tour of the United States on 25 July, but failed to show.
-
After United's 2-0 defeat to PSG in Chicago on Thursday, Laurent Blanc said both clubs were close to striking a deal for the player.
