Angel Di Maria is reportedly unhappy with life at Manchester United, and is angling for a move away from Old Trafford.

Di Maria only signed for Manchester United from Real Madrid in the summer for a British record transfer fee of nearly £60 million, but that has not stopped the rumours from linking the midfielder to a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG were the frontrunners for Di Maria's signature last summer, before they were forced to pull out owing to Financial Fair Play Regulations.

However, PSG are now reportedly ready to make a second move for Di Maria in the January transfer window or next summer, after seeing their FFP woes ease, with a swap deal involving Ezequeil Lavezzi going the other way also being mooted.

That move for Di Maria could also be eased, with the Argentina international reportedly not quite content at Manchester United, according to the Metro, who cite Spanish website Fichajes.

The report also suggests Di Maria's agent has already held talks with PSG over a possible move in the near future, be that in January or next summer.

While the midfielder has gone off the boil a bit in recent games, and is currently out injured with a hamstring tear, there have been no signs of this alleged unhappiness.

Indeed, Di Maria has looked quite happy and settled at Manchester United, and could prove to be the main man for the club in the second half of the season.

Di Maria, though, only added fuel to the fire of the PSG rumours by admitting to TalkSport magazine that he still has plenty of problems to iron out before finding his groove as a Manchester United player.

"I must adapt to my teammates, because there are still some moments in the game in which I feel I am not fully adapted yet," the Argentine said.

"The language barrier has also made it a bit harder, but I am trying to overcome that as soon as possible so I can communicate with everyone."

Moving to France will hardly ease the language barrier, while Di Maria also went on to add his style is best suited for the fast-paced English Premier League.

"I am a quick player and English football is quite fast and intense, just like I am," added Di Maria.

"So my style suits it well. The adaptation to a new country is never easy, but I got on the right foot from the very beginning.

"I scored goals and provided some assists, and that helped me a lot. But obviously I know I have to keep on improving."

The only way Manchester United are even likely to consider a sale is if the player himself asks for a move, and even then it looks improbable.

Much, of course, will depend on where Manchester United finish in the Premier League this season, as Louis Van Gaal will naturally have a tough time convincing players to endure another season without the Champions League if they fail to finish in the top four.

Manchester United, though, look on course for a top four finish having won their last four games in the Premier League, with the former champions currently sitting in fourth place, 11 points behind league leaders Chelsea, but only a point adrift of third-placed Southampton.
