Angel Di Maria has passed a medical and will be officially confirmed as a Manchester United player soon.
The Argentina international was one of Real Madrid’ best performers last season as they won the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.
But following Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez’s arrivals, the versatile midfielder has been deemed surplus to requirements at Santiago Bernabeu.
Reports are that the Premier League outfit will pay up to €75m for Di Maria, which would be a British record fee.
Several outlets, including Sky Sports, indicate that he passed a medical earlier this afternoon and signed a contract. All that is missing is an official announcement.
The former Benfica man will wear the No.7 shirt at Old Trafford.
