Angel Di Maria suffered a torrid year in the Premier League following an English top flight record transfer which saw the Argentine move to Manchester United from Real Madrid for a whopping £60 million, plus the extravagant wages, agent fees, and luxury perks that are attached to a superstar footballer nowadays. The attacker failed to justify the massive price tag, demonstrating his unquestioned ability in brief flashes, though it seemed as though the physicality of the league simply got the better of him. A -1 point drop is understandable, but any further could be harsh for a player who was in such fine form in La Liga.
