Cape Town - Manchester United's most expensive signing is set to depart the club after just one season after media reports suggest a fee has been agreed with Paris St Germain.

The Daily Star report that Manchester United will lose £13.7 million when Angel Di Maria moves to the Ligue 1 giants.

The Argentine winger did not travel to the United States to meet up with his teammates as expected as he looks to quit the Premier League outfit.

Manchester United will reportedly look to spend the £46 million received from the sale of Di Maria to land a marquee signing.

“Of course, we are still looking,” said Van Gaal.

“When it is possible to buy players from that level at a reasonable price then we shall do that because they can contribute and make us better. We are looking for much more creativity.”

Under Louis van Gaal's reign at Manchester United, the Old Trafford club has spent £230 million but have much work to do in the transfer market ahead of the new season kicking off on August 8 after seeing Robin van Persie departing and speculation mounting that the Red Devils signing Sergio Romero is the clearest indication of the impending exit of David De Gea.

The Red Devils have been linked with Real Madrid trio Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.

Manchester United completed their pre-season tour of North America against Di Maria's future club PSG on Wednesday.
