Arsenal set to make huge bid for Real Madrid's star winger

13 May 2014 10:57

Spanish newspaper Marca are reporting that FA Cup finalists Arsenal are set to make a huge bid of around £32.5 million for Real Madrid's pacey winger Angel Di Maria. Although around three other clubs are also said to be interested in the players signature, meaning former team mate Mesut Ozil - who made the same move last season – could play a big part in bringing Di Maria to The Emirates.

The Argentine international is keen to find out his future at Madrid before the World Cup and would be happy to stay. But with certain members of the Los Blancos hierarchy reportedly wanting to offload Di Maria a move to Arsenal has potential.

Current Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly keen on keeping the winger who at times has been unplayable this season. Although the amount power Ancelotti has at Madrid will be a big factor in whether or not the player stays or goes. A good performance in the Champions League Final against city rivals Atletico could well see the player stay put for another season.
