Angel Di Maria had spoken to Cristiano Ronaldo before penning a deal with Manchester United and the Portuguese talisman was full of praise for the 20-time English top division champions.
According to Di Maria, Ronaldo told him that if he decides to go to Old Trafford, it would be a great decision.
Di Maria was in conversation with a magazine last evening. When he was asked if he had talked to anyone before deciding to sign for Red Devils, the playmaker said, “Yes, I did. I had a bit of a chat with Cristiano about this and that chat really helped me make that call.”
‘We didn’t have a very long chat because I was not absolutely certain to be going to move to United. The negotiations were in early stages, but, whatever few things he said about United, they were all positive.”
When asked if he is happy with his life in England, Di Maria said, “At this point of time, yes, I am. I hope I am able to make some massive strides here at Old Trafford. That’s what I have come here for.”
At United, Di Maria has lived up to what was expected of him. He has been very prolific and has been one of shining lights for the club this season. He has found the net thrice in the 9 league games that he has played.
The Argentinean would turn up at Old Trafford again the day after tomorrow, but, not for United. He would be featuring there for his national side in a friendly versus Portugal.
There would definitely be huge support for Portugal at Old Trafford as most of the Manchester United fans still love Ronaldo and they are not going to miss the opportunity of watching him play again.
