In a surprising move from Santiago Bernabeu, Angel Di Maria has asked for a transfer from Real Madrid in which a move to Manchester United could come sooner than expected. After United reportedly offered a £100 million for Di Maria, it appears that the Argentine could be making a move to Old Trafford.

With the arrival of James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos at Real Madrid, Di Maria lost his starting position, which caused Di Maria to question his immediate future. Di Maria is a wanted man from several top clubs and it appears that Manchester United is the front-runner. This possible move to Manchester United will be exactly what United will need for a quick turnaround this season. After finishing seventh last season, success is expected from the club and with Di Maria, the midfield and wing back situation will be corrected.

With Di Maria making a move to Old Trafford, the new 3-5-2 wing back formation will be fixed since Di Maria can play both sides of the ball extremely well. The wing back position is crucial because it will allow the forwards to focus on the offense and leave the midfield and defense to maintain the counterattack. This news is crucial for Manchester United in their attempt to wrangle the Argentine winger, and this may be a sign from heaven. Di Maria will be the final piece of the puzzle for United in an attempt to get towards the top of the table.
