Manchester United superstar Angel Di Maria has revealed how he seeked advice from Cristiano Ronaldo before completing his move to Old Trafford in the summer.
The 26 year old has hit the ground running in England and has already become a fans favourtie amongst all the Manchester United fans.
“Before we knew I was coming to Manchester, he told me it’s a massive club, I would be very happy here and it would be good for me,” he said.
“At that time we didn’t know for sure that I was coming or not, so we didn’t go into great detail, but what he did say helped me greatly to make my decision.”
Di Maria already has 3 goals and 3 assists in his opening 5 games of his United career and hopes he can take on the added pressure of wearing the number 7 shirt.
“When you wear a shirt that’s been worn by the likes of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, it’s something you’re always going to be pleased about.”
“The fact that the club have chosen to give me that shirt number also gives me a huge confidence boost, so that’s why I’m very happy to have this number.”
