According to a report in Le Parisien, the winger is angry with a perceived U-turn by the club, with the player’s family settled in Paris. 

There is no tribute planned by the club on Saturday ahead of their final home game of the season, with PSG insisting that no decision has yet been taken on Di Maria’s future. 

Since leaving Manchester United for PSG in the summer of 2015, Di Maria has gone on to score 91 goals in 294 appearances for the French giants.

In that time he has won 18 trophies, including five Ligue 1 championships.
