Angel di Maria was unveiled as a Manchester United player today following his record breaking transfer earlier this week.

The Argentinean claimed his main aim is to get United back in to the Champions League for next season.

“I’m very pleased to be at Manchester United, I like the team and I wanted to come here even though there is no Champions League football this season,” he said. “I want to help them reach the Champions League again. I’m very pleased that Louis van Gaal chose me to come to Manchester United. Manchester United have already won many trophies and are a very big team. I came here to help them raise their game and win many more trophies with them.”

Di Maria, as expected, will wear the number seven shirt. He claims that his team mate at Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo, explained why that was the shirt he should want to wear.

“Cristiano told me what the No 7 shirt meant,” he said. “I wanted to wear this shirt. The club wanted me to wear it,’ Di Maria said.”
