PSG’s Qatari owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi believes that Di Maria is the key to success for the Champions League glory, he said that we are honor to sign Di Maria as he will lead us to our European dream.


Di Maria has already won the Champions League with Real Madrid in 2013-14 and after that he joined the English club with a rich history of football Manchester United. His last season with the Red Devils was dreadful, as it was a very costly mistake made by United.

The signing of Di Maria from Santiago Bernabu to Old Trafford costed the record breaking English league fee of £60 million. He was looking good with United, as he scored three goals for the club in three matches.
