The regular English football fan knows little about Angel di María. If he’s a Football Manager fanatic, then he’ll probably know he’s a freaking god in the last two or three versions of the game but that’s about it. If he’s an Everton fan, well, then he’ll know what he can do to a defence.

Benfica’s young winger is, apparently, keen on joining Manchester United even though nothing suggests that we are interested in him. But the News of the World quotes him and they are always right, aren’t they? Oh.

“Since I was 13 or 14 years old, I`ve been telling my mother and my father that my dream is to play some day for Manchester United,’ he said.

“And I won`t stop till I get it.

“When I watch Rooney and all of them on TV, I can`t wait to play there at Old Trafford.

“When I was a little boy I watched Arsenal games as well, but Manchester United always dazzled me most.’


Wow. This sort of dedication is nice to hear but who would be surprised if next week Marca revealed that Di María’s actual dream club were Real Madrid? And in any case, another Argie? We had no luck with the previous three I’m afraid although trends are there to be bucked.
