Angel di Maria’s imminent move to Manchester United is a step closer after he passed a medical ahead of his £59.7million plus add ons deal from Real Madrid. The deal, which would be a British transfer fee record, would see Di Maria earn £200,000-a-week wages over a five-year contract. The scale of the extra fees due from United will depend on the 26-year-old’s performances and the prospect of him winning the Ballon D’Or award.
