Since moving, the 26 year old has scored three goals and provided several assists for his team mates.

Two of his goals were key, with the strikes against West Ham and Everton both contributing heavily to important home wins.

Giggs, who knows a bit about exceptional midfield play, has said that he loves working with and watching Di Maria play.

He said: “You don’t need to do a lot with him.

“He’s that sort of player, he’s a free spirit. He will take you from box to box really quickly and he will create and score goals.

Di Maria was only part of an extended effort to improve the squad this summer, with the club spending £150 million on players.
