Di Maria wants Madrid stay

Angel Di Maria is desperate to stay at Real Madrid, despite rumours that he could be used as part of the Gareth Bale deal.

Marca have suggested this afternoon that Spurs could ask for the wide-man as a direct replacement for their Wales international, as he moves closer to a move to Santiago Bernabeu.

But the Madrid-based newspaper has claimed that the Argentine winger does not want to leave Los Blancos, and is happy to fight for his place in the starting XI.

Di Maria has been wildly inconsistent since joining from Benfica back in 2010, and was used sparingly by Jose Mourinho last term, starting 22 League games.
