Angel Di Maria
Angel di Maria is now willing to helping PSG in what they have lacked in the past - reaching the Champions League final stagesReuters

Argentina international Angel di Maria has revealed that he wants to help French giants Paris St-Germain reach the final stages of the Champions League ahead of his official signing with PSG.

The thought of leaving a club like Manchester United might be difficult for many, but the Argentine master-dribbler has stated that he is "very happy" to join the French outfit.

The recent comments from Di Maria end all the speculations about him moving to PSG this summer. The confirmation has come from the horse's mouth.

"I am very happy to join Paris St-Germain. They're very important," the 27-year-old told Qatari broadcasting network beIN SPORTS, as quoted by the BBC.

While the transfer is yet to be confirmed officially by the clubs, it is expected that at the end of the day, Di Maria will be signing a long-term contract – believed to be a four-year-deal - at Parc des Princes.

The winger is reportedly making a £44.3m move to PSG - £15m less than what the Old Trafford side had paid him last summer (£59.7m).

His medical on Tuesday was held in Doha and it was even confirmed by one of the sports hospitals, Aspetar, based there.

"They [PSG] made it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, so my objective was to arrive to Paris and to help them through the quarter-final barrier, because they have struggled in the past two seasons," Di Maria added. 

"I will try to do the best I can to help the club in those objectives and reach the final stages of the Champions League."

With the presence of compatriots Javier Pastore and Ezequiel Lavezzi, as well as good friend and ex-club teammate David Luiz, it can be said that it won't be too long for Di Maria to settle at PSG.

Meanwhile, Manchester United fans are not pleased with what transpired in the last 24 hours -
