Di Maria's agent holds PSG talks

Jorge Mendes arrived in Paris on Tuesday to meet with officials of the Ligue 1 giants, while Manchester United also sent a representative to discuss a potential player exchange
Angel Di Maria's agent Jorge Mendes has travelled to France for talks with Paris Saint-Germain, Goal can reveal.
Mendes arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport on Tuesday and met with PSG officials as he looks to finalise Di Maria's exit from Manchester United.
Goal understands that Louis van Gaal's side have also dispatched a representative to the French capital, with the club making enquiries over the possibility of a player exchange deal.
Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani has long been on United's radar although the club are unsure that the forward would be keen on a switch to Old Trafford unless he was guaranteed a starting role.
Gregory van der Wiel, meanwhile, has also been mooted as a potential arrival at Old Trafford although the signing of Matteo Darmian from Torino is unlikely to see the Red Devils move for an additional right-back.
Di Maria only joined United from Real Madrid in a €75 million deal last summer but struggled to convince Van Gaal that he was worthy of a first team place.
The 27-year-old winger only made 20 league starts for the Red Devils during the 2014-15 campaign and PSG, who lost out in the battle to land the Argentine last summer, appear to be finally getting their man.
PSG boss Laurent Blanc confirmed on July 12 that the Ligue 1 champions were interested in signing the talented winger, while Goal reported back in March that Di Maria was intent on leaving United after a fall-out with Van Gaal.
Di Maria was left out of United's pre-season tour party that travelled to Seattle on Monday and although that was as a result of his Copa America exertions, talks to seal his exit away from Old Trafford are now gathering pace.
