Di Maria rush: United superstore runs out of ‘R’


DI-MARIA-OUTLONDON, August 26- The Manchester United superstore ran out of the letter ‘R’ with supporters clambering for an Angel Di Maria shirt.

A sign was put outside the official club store informing fans that there were no ‘R’ letters left in black print.

Di Maria is set to sign for Manchester United for a British record transfer fee of £59.7million plus-add-ons and will earn £200,000-a-week in wages.

He is expected to join up with his new United teammates at training on Thursday and the club hope to formalise his work permit and registration by 12noon Friday.

The Argentine international will have a medical on Tuesday before he is unveiled as a Manchester United signing.

The move will take United’s signing over the £160million mark for the calendar year. He will become the club’s fourth signing of the summer.
