Cape Town - Despite impressing at Old Trafford, the Spanish media have all but forgotten Argentine winger Angel Di Maria.

Following Real Madrid's latest La Liga win, Spanish newspaper Marca launched a mini-attack on the former Real Madrid star.

Real Madrid crushed Levante 5-0 but Marca's headline read: "Angel who? James shines again."
"Talk has already died down regarding his €80m price tag and even more so about Di Maria's fleeting shadow after his departure." wrote Marca.

"Debate surrounding whether or not it was the correct decision to sign James Rodriguez to replace Angel di María seems to have faded away after just one month."

Real spent a mammoth £71 million to sign James Rodriguez from Monaco after the Colombian starred in the World Cup in Brazil this summer.
