The Madrid coach has confirmed that the winger has told the club he wants to leave amid ongoing reports linking him with Manchester United

Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that Angel Di Maria wants to leave Real Madrid and that they are looking for a solution before the end of the summer transfer window.The Argentina international has lost his starting berth at Madrid following the arrival of James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos this summer and is keen to move on in order to get regular first-team action elsewhere.

Di Maria has been heavily linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United in the past few months, but the Ligue 1 champions recently stated that they are no longer interested in signing the winger due to financial reasons, leaving United seemingly as the main contender to lure him away from the Santiago Bernabeu.

“The player has requested a transfer this summer. He rejected the club’s offer to stay at Madrid, so we are looking for a solution,” Ancelotti said at a press conference.
