Spurs eye deal for Di Maria

Tottenham have contacted the representatives of Ángel di Maria about a summer move to the North London Stadium.

The 32-yewar-old will be a free agent at the end of the season, and there is expected to be a race for his signature across Europe,

PSG though, having failed to agree a contract extension with him last year, are still hopeful they can agree a new deal with the Argentine international.

Jose Mourinho knows the player well, having managed him during his time at Real Madrid, and Di maria has previously expressed his gratitude for the impact that the Portuguese had on his career.

What may give both player and club pause for thought though are memories of his previous experience in English football.

He joined Manchester United from Real in 2014 for a fee of almost £60 million, but found it difficult toa adapt to life in England, managing 4 goals in 32 appearances before he was sold to PSG  a year later. The press later labelled him as the worst transfer of that season.
