Angel di Maria has revealed the difficulties he faced during his time at Manchester United
ahead of his Paris Saint-Germain
side's Champions League
encounter with them.
United signed the forward in August 2014 for £59.7m, a British record transfer fee at the time.
Louis van Gaal, who signed the Argentine as Red Devils manager, described him as 'world class'.

But things didn't go to plan at Old Trafford, and after one season in England the winger was sold to PSG.
Di Maria was subject to a terrifying raid
on his Cheshire home in February 2015, a factor which contributed to his inability to settle in Manchester.
Burglars were believed to have used scaffolding poles to smash their way into the mansion while he watched TV with his wife and infant daughter.
French champions PSG are unable to select an injured Neymar in Tuesday night's clash with Man United and Di Maria is in line to face his former team.
Ahead of the last-16 first-leg tie the 30-year-old spoke to radio station France Bleu
about his spell in Manchester.
He said: 'I only stayed one year. It wasn't the best period of my career, or they didn't let me have my best time there.
'There were problems with the coach at the time. But thanks to God, I was able to come to PSG and be myself again.'
United go into the game in brilliant form with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having guided his team to 10 wins in their last 11 in all competitions.
PSG meanwhile have won their last two after losing 2-1 to Lyon in Ligue 1.
