ANGEL DI MARIA: Paul Parker believes Argentine would have been better off elsewhere


Manchester United’s Argentine winger Angel Di Maria, would have suited Arsenal or Chelsea more, according to a former favourite of the Red Devils. 

Former United defender, Paul Parker, believes that the 27-year-old would have been better off at one of the Red Devils Premier League rivals, following a poor run of form at Old Trafford. 

Di Maria has netted four-times since his £60m arrival from Real Madrid, and was sent-off in United’s 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Arsenal on Monday evening. 

The Argentina international has also experienced unrest in England, following an attempted break-into his Cheshire home back in December. 

But Parker believes that both club and player should cut ties with one another, with French side Paris Saint-Germain keen. 

‘The only way it is going to work out for Di Maria, the only way he is going to get back to being the player he was before, is to move on,’ Parker toldEurosport.

‘PSG would suit him nicely, as would going back to Real Madrid. In England, Arsenal are the best fit for the way they shift the ball around quickly in midfield, but even Chelsea would be a better home for him than United as they are a bit more expressive now.’
