Angel Di Maria: Rejected rumours linking with a move away from Real Madrid

Di Maria's future at Real has been the subject for the last few months since the arrival of Gareth Bale in his world-record move from Tottenham in the summer.

Tottenham, Arsenal and Monaco have all been linked with a move for the Argentina international, but Di Maria insists he is happy to stay at Real.

Di Maria, who scored in Real's 3-2 win over Valencia on Sunday, also dismissed claims that he asked for a new contract at the Bernabeu.

"I'm happy at Real Madrid," the 25-year-old told AS. "I have never asked for a (contract) renewal. A player who does not play is not going to ask for a renewal.

"My head is in Madrid. You (journalists) said that I was going to Tottenham. You know where this information came from."

Di Maria also admitted he expected to lose his place in Carlo Ancelotti's side to Bale due to the amount of money Real spent on signing the Welshman.

"In the summer, they wanted to get rid of me the whole time," added Di Maria.

"I knew a 100 million euro player was coming, and it was normal that he would play."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
