PARIS (AP):

Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria will join Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on a four-year deal to become the second most expensive player in the French league history. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Di Maria is expected in Paris later this week to sign the deal after undergoing a medical exam in Doha on Monday.

He spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorised to speak publicly about the deal before it is official. Manchester United have agreed to sell the Argentina winger for a fee that is "in the region of €63 million (US$69 million)" the person said.

At PSG, the versatile Di Maria will be teaming up with Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani, who joined the Qatari-funded club for a reported fee of €64 million hen PSG broke the French transfer record in 2013. The former Real Madrid midfielder joined United for £59.7 million (US$99 million) last summer as the most expensive signing in the history of British football, but he had an inconsistent season at Old Trafford.

Di Maria got off to a bright start early in the season then struggled to adapt to the Premier League.
