Exclusive – Di Maria is not the answer to Man United’s problems, insists McAllister

first_imgGary McAllister insists Angel di Maria is NOT the answer to Manchester United’s problems.The Red Devils have made a poor start to the Premier League season, drawing their opening two games but failing to impress in either, and they are now set to shell out a British record fee to sign the Real Madrid wide man.But McAllister doesn’t believe the Argentine will provide the solution to the issues facing Louis van Gaal.“Is Di Maria a player who can grab the game by the throat and really dominate it?” he asked on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“I think he’s a player who flits in and out of the game. He’s talented, he can hit a pass, he can score a goal, but £70m-odd? It’s crazy some of the money that’s flying around.“Bryan Robson, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes – it’s that type of player United need. Di Maria is a fantastic technician, Herrera is another, but they’re not quite Steven Gerrard or Bryan Robson.”last_img
