Angel Di Maria proves why he could be Manchester United's greatest 'signing' this summer

If you thought Angel Di Maria was finished - think again.
The midfielder played a starring role in Argentina's 6-1 demolition of Paraguay last night - scoring two and assisting another:
The former Real Madrid midfielder endured a disappointing debut season in the Premier League, registering just three goals and eight assists.
The 27 year-old was hampered by injury for large parts of the campaign, costing the club a reported £1.6 million in wages whilst on the sidelines.
His combined absence and lack of form drew criticism from Manchester United fans with rumours surfacing that Barcelona were ready to offer him a return to La Liga this summer.
But after last night's display, United fans were optimistic that the best was yet to come from Di Maria in a Manchester United shirt.

2 goals & an assist for Angel Di Maria yesterday. Will add a lot of confidence in him. He's been great at Copa America. HE'S BACK— Woodward Time (@Scholesy_Giggsy) July 1, 2015
