#5 Angel di Maria

'Nr7' Ángel di Maria couldn't impress the crowd at Old Trafford

After Ángel di Maria played 4 years for Real Madrid, the management decided that the Argentinian striker had to leave 'Los Blancos'. Di Maria demanded high salary requirements, which the direction didn't accept.

After the World Cup in Brazil in 2014 Di Maria had to find a new club to shine for. Eventually, Manchester United bought the attacker for €75 million euros. At that time, the transfer of Di Maria to Manchester United was the most expensive British transfer of all time.

At first, Ángel di Maria did impress the Mancunian fans with high quality matches and goals. Because of that, Ángel di Maria received the trophy for best football player for Argentina in 2014. He did even beat superstar Lionel Messi, who won the prize 7 years in a row.

However, in the second half of the season di Maria couldn't stick to his form of the first half of the season. Then coach, Louis van Gaal, even put di Maria on the bench several times. After only one season, di Maria left to Paris Saint Germain. The French side paid €63 million for 'El Angelito'. Di Maria made only 4 goals for Manchester United in 32 games.
