Di Maria perfect fit for PSG, says Roche

The ex-France international believes that the reportedly unsettled Manchester United winger would fit in well at the Ligue 1 champions

Former Paris Saint-Germain defender Alain Roche feels Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria would be the perfect signing for the Ligue 1 champions.

The Parc des Princes side were keen to lure Di Maria to the French capital last season, but he eventually opted to leave Real Madrid for United instead.

The 27-year-old has failed to make an impact at Old Trafford, though, and has been linked with a move away from the Premier League outfit again this summer.

Roche firmly believes that should Di Maria become available, PSG should do everything within their power to land a player that he believes would significantly strengthen Lauren Blanc’s squad.

“You have to score goals in order to make the difference at the highest level,” the ex-France international told L’Equipe.

“It gives defenders and midfielders a lot of confidence when they know their attackers can score a goal from out of nowhere. It changes your entire approach.

“In my opinion, PSG should sign a left winger who could make the difference. Argentina international Di Maria would be a perfect fit.

“He can open up a defence, create chances, score goals and can play in all positions in attack. He would be a huge bonus for PSG.”

Di Maria has a contract with United until June 2019.
