Cape Town - Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville is delighted that Angel Di Maria is making the move to Old Trafford.

Neville was commenting after United were held at Sunderland on Sunday.

Sky Sports report that the former Red Devils defender is happy but concerned about the club's transfer power.

“It’s good business. United have lost their negotiation strength but they just need to get the right players.

"This one is. " said Neville.

"He'll get pace into the game and get from box to box.

"He’s the right signing.

"You could argue they need other players in other areas but they definitely need a wide player.”

Louis van Gaal refused to enter into the Di Maria transfer talk. 

“The club has to announce it,” said the Dutch manager.

“When we are thinking it is the right time for a transfer, then we come to you and say ‘OK, we have that player or the other player’. But at this time we cannot say anything.”

Van Gaal showed his humourous side when he answered a question on whether he would like to sign Di Maria.

“I like Messi also and I like Vidal also so we have a lot of players in this world that I like but they cannot come always to Manchester United.” joked Van Gaal.
