Manchester United troll Angel Di Maria ahead of Super Cup clash with Real Madrid as they miss Argentinian off list of players who have starred for both clubs

 

Red Devils signed the winger from Real Madrid for a British record £59.7m fee in 2014

The Red Devils take on their fellow European heavyweights on Wednesday night in Macedonia.

Angel Di Maria proved a massive flop at Old Trafford under Louis van Gaal after joining United for £59.7m before being sold a year later

And ahead of the highly anticipated match, United produced a feature naming each player that has played for both sides.

But there was one notable absence in Di Maria.

The Red Devils broke the British transfer record to sign the Argentine from Real Madrid for £59.7million in 2014.

The 29-year-old failed to live up to his price-tag having played just one season at Old Trafford scoring three times.

He was then shipped off to Paris Saint-Germain where he has rejuvenated his career.

Six players were on the list in total including David Beckham, Laurie Cunningham, Gabriel Heinze, Michael Owen, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Jose Mourinho has made it no secret of his interest in Gareth Bale

And if Jose Mourinho gets his way it could be seven in Gareth Bale.

The Portuguese boss has thrown his hat in the ring to sign the Welsh winger by claiming he will ‘fight other coaches’ to land his signature.

If Real Madrid gaffer Zinedine Zidane does plan on cashing in, then Tottenham could pip their title rivals to his signature because they have ‘first option.’
