According to reports in South America, the Argentina international is ready to part ways with the Champions League winners after Carlo Ancelotti signed Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez after the World Cup, and Di Maria has his heart set on a switch to either France or England.

PSG earlier announced that they were no longer in the running for the ex-Benfica man's signature, with president Nasser Al Khelaifi said: "We discussed Angel Di Maria with Real Madrid. He was very expensive and we have stopped discussions."

However, the Ligue 1 champions are ready to make another move as they look to offload Ezequiel Lavezzi to Liverpool in a deal worth around £18million.
