PSG set to axe Di Maria in summer despite option to extend contract as they fight English clubs for Dembele transfer
ANGEL DI MARIA'S seven-year spell at Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly come to an end this summer.
The Manchester United flop is out of contract at PSG at the end of the season, with the club unlikely to trigger the option for Di Maria to stay for another year.
French outlet RMC Sport claim chiefs at the club will green-light Di Maria's departure come the end of the campaign.
That frees up space to make a move for another out of contract winger – Ousmane Dembele.
Dembele's future has been the subject of constant speculation in recent months, with the Frenchman expected to leave Barcelona when his contract expires in the summer.
And PSG are claimed to have 'started discussions' with Dembele's entourage.

Although the French giants will face stiff competition from a number of Premier League clubs for Dembele's signature.
The 24-year-old has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Newcastle in recent weeks.
However RMC state a 'turnaround' regarding Di Maria, 34, is still possible, with a final decision not yet made on whether he will leave at the start of the next transfer window.
The player himself is reportedly keen to move on this summer and is eyeing an emotional return to former club Benfica.
