Reports in France are suggesting that Paris Saint Germain are upping their pursuit of Manchester United's Angel di Maria, but are only prepared to pay €63m (£45m).

The Argentinian has been on the bench for United's last five games and has struggled to adapt to the Premier League since his switch from Real Madrid last summer.

The Red Devils broke the British transfer record when they splashed out £59.7 to bring the playmaker to Manchester, but he has struggled to replicate the form that made him one of the most feared players in Europe over the last three years.

The French side tried to sign Di Maria last summer but their plans were scuppered when their spending power was curbed by UEFA for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations.

He remains very much on the radar, but the €63m figure quoted that Laurent Blanc's side are willing to pay would represent a €20m loss on the 27-year-old.

United, or manager Louis van Gaal, have not given any indication that they are looking to sell this summer.
