Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur were all considering January bids for the Argentinian but will have to think again following the attacker’s clear commitments.
The world record signing of Gareth Bale cast doubts upon the future of Di Maria but he kept his place in the team while Mesut Özil was sold to Arsenal in the most surprising move of the summer.
Di Maria claims he never wanted to leave despite the arrivals on Bale and Isco.
“I wanted to stay from the start, because being here is the best possible thing that could have happened to me.”
“It’s true that it was a difficult summer in which a lot was said and many lies were told.”
“I am happy because things are going well for me. I am getting game time and I am feeling confident.”
