Chicago - Paris Saint-Germain claimed the International Champions Cup with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Wednesday night at Soldier Field.

Off the field, PSG might be on the verge of scoring another victory over the Red Devils.

Following the game, PSG manager Laurent Blanc said his squad is close to finishing a deal with Manchester United for talented midfielder Angel di Maria, who didn't make the trip to the U.S. for the four-match series.

"As Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are very big clubs, negotiations can be difficult," Blanc said through a translator.

"But I feel negotiations are close to the end."

The transfer fee could be as high as £45 million for di Maria, who spent last season with Manchester United after the Red Devils picked him up from Real Madrid for an even larger fee.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal wouldn't confirm that a deal is imminent.

"I don't answer that question," van Gaal said.

"I don't know. We'll announce something when it's done. It is not done. It's a process. I want to interfere with nothing."
