Manchester United have been boosted in their pursuit of Angel Di Maria after he reportedly snubbed Paris St Germain.

Spanish daily AS claims PSG were rebuffed when they enquired about Di Maria to Real Madrid over the weekend.

Apparently, the word back from the Argentinian World Cup winger was that he would prefer a move to the Premier League.

However this still leaves an obstacle for United to overcome because Di Maria is said to want Champions League football next season.

United would hope to persuade him their absence from the world's top club competition would only be for a year if they do speak to his camp.
