The Red Devils have smashed their transfer record to lure the Argentine to Old Trafford, bringing their summer spend to in excess of £130 million as Louis van Gaal rebuilds. Manchester United have completed the signing of Real Madrid ace Angel Di Maria, who becomes the most expensive signing in Premier League history.

After completing a medical and the requisite paperwork on Tuesday to seal the deal, Di María said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester United. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Spain and there were a lot of clubs interested in me, but United is the only club that I would have left Real Madrid for.

Ángel di María said Manchester United were the “only club” for which he would have left Real Madrid as the 26-year-old completed a £59.7m British record transfer, signing a five-year contract worth around £200,000 a week.

Ángel di María is set to become a Manchester United player after the club agreed a British record transfer fee of £59.7m to buy him from Real Madrid, with the 20-times champions hoping to announce his transfer officially on Tuesday morning.

Manchester United have agreed a £59.7million fee with Real Madrid for Angel Di Maria this evening, Press Association Sport understands.

Goal reported on Saturday that United had made a breakthrough in their attempts to bring the 26-year-old to Old Trafford, with the player having decided that he wanted to join the Premier League club. And with talks between the two sides having accelerated in the last 24 hours, Di Maria has now arrived in Manchester and is expected to agree personal terms and complete a medical on Tuesday.

If The Deal Is Completed, This Will Take United's Spending This Transfer Season To A Whopping 131 Million Pounds, With A Possibility Of More Additions

The deal will take the club’s summer spend to £130.7m, with United still intent on adding further signings before 1 September. Juventus’s Arturo Vidal, Milan’s Nigel de Jong and Ajax’s Daley Blind are all prospective targets as clubs enter the final week of the summer window.

United’s record buy was Juan Mata from Chelsea for £37.1m in January this year. United have already spent £72m this summer to sign the left-back Luke Shaw from Southampton, midfielder Ander Herrera and defender Marcos Rojo. Di Maria joined Real Madrid from Benfica for £36m in 2010.

The Addition Of Di Maria Will Be A Timely Boost For United Supporters After A Disappointing Start To The Season

Di Maria's arrival will give the club a welcome lift following a disappointing start to the season that has delivered just one point from their opening two Premier League games but there is concern that his signing, as stellar as it is, fails to address United's real needs and Van Gaal is pressing the club to deliver two more players over the coming days.

That veiled criticism was backed up by Van Gaal, who refused to discuss the potential arrival of Di Maria (right), after another unconvincing display at the Stadium of Light. United could manage only a 1-1 draw after going ahead through Juan Mata, a result that leaves them with just one point from their opening two games. Van Gaal conceded that is not good enough and also criticised the pace of his team’s passing.

The capture of Di María, who was the man of the match when Real won the Champions League in May, represents a coup for United considering the club are not in this season’s premier competition and need to strengthen their squad after the team have let five points slip from the first two matches.

The United midfield problem is not new. Doctorates could – and maybe should – be written about how and why it is yet to be resolved. Van Gaal joins Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes as managers who, since Roy Keane and Paul Scholes faded and Owen Hargreaves suffered a career-hobbling injury, have found the problem a puzzle.

But it is the signing of Di Maria, a player of the quality that Van Gaal openly admitted his side are missing, that would make the biggest statement as the Dutch coach looks to get United back on track in the hunt for the top-four and potentially a Premier League title push.

Despite spending more than champions Manchester City this summer and more than title favourites Chelsea this year, there is a perception United have not strengthened enough, even with the capture of Rojo.

If the 2012-13 Premier League champions want to finish in the top four and return to where they belong in the Champions League then they simply must sign at least two or three top players in the next couple of weeks.
