Manchester United are continuing to monitor the possibility of a move for Real Madrid's Angel Di Maria, but sources have told ESPN the player would favour a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Di Maria's preference is believed to be down to his desire to keep playing Champions League football, although UEFA's financial fair play rules could yet open the way for United.

Given that PSG are still attempting to strike a financial balance in order to conform to the regulations, they may have to sell big in order to fund a move for Di Maria.

The 26 year old knows his chances at Real will be limited this season and is expected to make a decision on his future in the coming days.

A year-long loan move to Paris Germain has been mooted, but United are keeping tabs on the situation. One of new manager Louis van Gaal's main targets is a tactically versatile attacking wide player and Di Maria fits that bill.
