According to our colleagues at RMC, PSG have formally upped their offer for Angel di Maria to €65m plus bonuses.
This is offer is understood to have been presented to Ed Woodward on Monday, who flew back especially from the US to meet with PSG Sporting Director Olivier Létang. According to Le Parisien, the meeting was constructive and a deal is closer. Angel di Maria has given an agreement in principle to join PSG, but he wants €12.5m a year net, while PSG are offering him €10m a year net on a 4 year deal.
Laurent Blanc wants the deal done as soon as possible, with The Telegraph claiming that the Ligue 1 champions want to close the deal this weekend. French press believes a deal will likely be completed by the end of the month, with Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal wanting to sign a replacement, or at least be in advanced negotiations with one, before he lets go of Di Maria, who wants to join PSG.
