With Gareth Bale’s transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu looking imminent, Arsenal are all set to capatilize on the move by splashing out cash on the Argentine flamboyant winger, Angel Di Maria. According to The Metro, Arsenal have decided to throw out a heavy bid of 25m for Di Maria who’s starting place in the team looks threatened because of the Gareth Bale’s imminent arrival at Los Blancos.
Although the good relation between Di Maria and Cristiano Ronaldo have made the Real Madrid main man Ronaldo requesting Florentino Perez not to sell Di Maria. But if Di Maria needs regular play time he might as well have to change clubs due to a world record transfer fee to be announced officially in a few days.
Karim Benzema would be another big name left fighting for his place in the Real line-up, but his agent insists a move to the Gunners is not on the cards as yet.
With Gervinho’s departure, Arsenal not only lack strength in the wing department but also don’t have depth for a squad to fight for the Premier League glory. Di Maria’s trickery and pace is his main strength with ability to throw in accurate crosses which will prove tremendously beneficial for Arsenal, as Giroud and Di Maria might very well complement each other playing styles.
