Di Maria's proposed move from Manchester United to PSG is close to being decided

Angel Di Maria's proposed move from Manchester United to Paris St-Germain is close to being decided, says the French team's coach Laurent Blanc.

The Argentina midfielder has not joined United on their pre-season tour of America, and manager Louis van Gaal has said he "does not know why".

"There is a good possibility he could sign but there is nothing official," said Blanc after a defeat by Chelsea.

"We have to have patience a little longer. The outcome is very close."
French paper L'Equipe has reported United have agreed a £46.5m deal with the French champions for the 27-year-old.

But it is understood talks are ongoing with a fee yet to be agreed.

"He was not on the plane," said Van Gaal after the 3-1 friendly win over Barcelona in Santa Clara, California.

"Marcos Rojo was also not on the plane. He has had a passport issue - for Di Maria, I don't know why. I cannot say anything."
Van Gaal said on Friday that Di Maria would join United on their pre-season tour of the United States, despite rumours about a move to PSG.

However, it has now been claimed the winger, who moved to the Premier League from Real Madrid last summer for a British record £59.7m, will travel to New Jersey - where PSG are based during their tour of the United States - for a medical with the Ligue 1 club.
