Spanish media are reporting that a fee of £63.9 million has been agreed, but United camp maintain that a deal has not yet been struck, although negotiations are on-going between Ed Woodward, the executive vice-chairman, and the Spanish club.

The Times reckon that the fee could be as high as £68 million if certain conditions are met. Chelsea set the current British transfer record when they signed Fernando Torres from Liverpool for £50m. 

Di Maria has already said goodbye to his Real Madrid team mates, and is expected to fly to Manchester today with a view to taking a medical and signing a contract worth £8m per year. He will wear the iconic no 7 at Manchester United.
