As things stand, it's like Angel Di Maria could be on his way to Paris.
Paris Saint German are set to complete the transfer worth £63m for the
Argentine play maker from Real Madrid.
But it may be possible for them to take Di Maria on a one-season loan to bypass the regulations before signing him permanently next summer.
However, Real manager Carlo Ancelotti still expects the player, who helped Argentina to the final of the World Cup, to return to training on August 5.
When asked if Di Maria was set to leave the Bernabeu, Ancelotti replied: 'There is nothing new in the market. Di Maria finished the World Cup and he is resting.
'He will return on August 5 to start (training) together with his team-mates.'
The one stumbling block to the deal could be UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations, as the French champions have already spent £50m buying David Luiz from Chelsea.
