Manchester United's Angel Di Maria has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has said he was misquoted after reports suggested he had talked up the possibility of team-mate Angel di Maria joining Paris St Germain.

French television programme Telefoot tweeted a quote from Fellaini in which he said: "Angel di Maria would be a good signing for PSG. He is a world class player."

But the Belgian insisted that was not an accurate reflection of what he had said.

"Seems I have been misquoted from @telefoot_TF1 interview !!!!" Fellaini tweeted.

" I said that Di Maria would be a good signing for any club as he is a great player. I also said if I were him I would STAY at @ManUtd".

United broke the British transfer record when they signed Di Maria from Real Madrid last summer for £59.7million, but though the 27-year-old Argentinian made a strong start to life in the Barclays Premier League his form dipped significantly in the second half of the season and he lost his place in the side.

That has led to speculation that he could leave Old Trafford after only one season.
