Angel Di Maria and the 'Panic Buy' Tag

Angel Di Maria is an extremely talented player, a player who will bring pace, guile and skill to a Manchester United side currently devoid of all three. The Argentine created more chances for his team mates last year than Suarez, Ronaldo, Messi, James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale, yet there are still detractors queueing up to put a negative spin on the transfer.
