Former Manchester United defender Gabriel Heinze has declared that Argentina international Angel Di Maria is one of the best players in the world, after his £59.7 million move to the Old Trafford club, as reported by the Daily Star.
Di Maria was a late buy in the summer transfer window, with the Red Devils shattering the British transfer record outlay by paying almost £60 million for the player.
He has lived up to the price tag so far, scoring three goals and providing several assists for his new club, and his goal against Everton at the weekend turned out to be key as they won by a single strike.
With that in mind, Heinze, who is also from Argentina, has praised his compatriot heavily.
The 36 year old ex-Man Utd player also thinks that Di Maria, who he played with for the national side, will get even better as time goes on.
Heinze told the press: “Anything I say about Angel Di Maria is not enough. For me, he’s one of the four best players in the world.
“He’s already reached an amazing level and arrived at an amazing club where they will look after him and he’ll perform really well for them.
“I think everyone needs time to adapt, especially in the English league.
“You need to adapt but the club can help you and Manchester United will make things easier for you.”
