TRANSFER NEWS: Man Utd face £75m Di Maria fee, Giroud enough for Arsenal, Torres stays


ANGEL DI MARIA’S transfer fee has risen to £75million as Real Madrid sense desperation from Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United, who are yet to win this season. Arsenal won’t be signing a new striker as Arsene Wenger banks on Olivier Giroud to bag 25 goals this term, while Fernando Torres is not leaving Chelsea.

Manchester United have been told they must pay £75million for Angel Di Maria, £11m more than the fee agreed with Real Madrid for the Argentine on Sunday

Van Gaal is also keen on selling Old Trafford striker Danny Welbeck to raise urgent funds for the Di Maria transfer, with Tottenham ready to bid £15m for the England international

Meanwhile at Arsenal, Arsene Wenger is unlikely to add to his forward firepower as he claims striker Olivier Giroud is a 25-goal a season man
