Angel Di Maria to stay at Manchester United despite PSG talk

Angel Di Maria has said he will be at Manchester United next season despite a "hard" debut campaign in England.

Di Maria became the British record signing when he joined United from Real Madrid for £59.7 million last summer.

The Argentina international's career at Old Trafford started promisingly but he struggled for form during the second half of the term, scoring three goals in 27 Premier League appearances.

Di Maria, 27, has been linked with a summer move to Paris Saint-Germain, but the winger said in The Sun: "I have just finished my first season playing for Manchester United.

"Now I will play the Copa America and then I will move back to Manchester for next season and do my best there.

"It was a hard season for me. I think it was hard because it was another country and another league, and this league is harder than the Spanish one.

"So, I couldn't adapt myself as I wanted to. La Liga and the Premier League are completely different. The Premier League is physically stronger.

"It was not easy at all. I ended playing few minutes. Under [manager Louis] Van Gaal I played in lots of positions until he decided to bench me.

"I think I did a good job, though. I finished second in assists and I scored some goals, so I definitely think I did well in my first season at Manchester United."
