Angel Di Maria

The winger was unveiled as Manchester United's fourth signing of the summer on Thursday afternoon.

Manchester United unveiled their new signing Angel Di Maria after he signed for a British record fee from Real Madrid.

He became the fourth signing of the summer but easily the most high profile for a fee of £59.7 million.

The Argentine international said he was happy to join the club despite others being interested in his services, and despite the lack of Champions League football at Old Trafford this season.

He has been given the club's number seven shirt, following in the footsteps of legendary figures in the form of George Best, Eric Cantona - and more recently David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Di Maria has said he wants to help the team raise it's game and is targeting trophies during his time at the club.
