Di Maria will not quit Old Trafford

first_imgAngel Di Maria insists he does not want to leave Manchester United but admits he is at a loss as to why he has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford. The Argentinian joined the Red Devils for a British-record £59.7million in the summer but, after a promising start to his career in England, injury and a loss of form saw him finish the season on the bench. That has prompted some talk of a move away, with reports in Spain suggesting Barcelona are set to make an audacious move for the forward who only left arch-rivals Real Madrid 10 months ago. But Di Maria, currently at the Copa America with Argentina, has stressed he will stay and fight for his place, despite revealing he is in an “uncomfortable” position. “I started well with goals and assists,” he told Argentinian newspaper Ole. “I was having a good time, until I was outside (of the first team). “It’s a little hard to explain why I do not play.” Asked if he was uncomfortable, he added: “‘Yes, for me and my family. Because not everything goes as I want, because I don’t play. “I came with an intention and ended up on the bench. It’s hard to say how I feel there. “No (I will not leave) because I’m not thinking like that. “In Madrid there were times when I was whistled around the stadium but I faced it and then it turned around. I like to deal with things. “I’ve demonstrated what I do for several years.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
