PSG striker Zlatan backs Di Maria move.

Top striker Zlatan Ibramhimovic welcomes his side's reported move for Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria, The Irish Times reports.

The most expensive Red Devils signing Di Maria is on the verge of sealing a move to Ligue 1 champions PSG, after spending just a season at Old Trafford.

The former Real Madrid player was supposed to board a flight from Buenos Aires to link up with Louis van Gaal's side in America but after United's 3-1 win over Barcelona, the boss confirmed the Argentine didn't catch the flight and had no further explanation as to why Di Maria missed it.

However, Sweden international Ibramhimovic is quoted as saying: "I don’t know if it is done but of course if you get a chance to play with Di Maria it is a fantastic thing. The guy has won everything. He is a fantastic player who plays for the team.

"He brings pace to a team. He brings quality, big quality and for sure he will make our team even better than it is today. So for sure he is welcome and we will receive him with open arms.

"It’s all about small details. Real Madrid are a fantastic team. They have fantastic players. Of course when Real Madrid got Bale they became better for sure and we will become better for sure with Di Maria."
