The Argentine's agent, Eugenio Lopez, claims that he would have been happy to remain at the Bernabeu for less than he now earns.

Angel Di Maria would have been happy to stay at Real Madrid even if it meant earning less money than Manchester United offered him, according to his agent.

While club president Florentino Perez claimed that the Argentine winger had turned down a lucrative contract offer at the Bernabeu, the player's representative has rejected the notion he was overly greedy.

"Di Maria went to Manchester United asking for €8million net. He would have stayed in Madrid for a lot less," Eugenio Lopes said on Spanish radio station Cadena COPE.

"Angel wanted to stay. The difference [in the contract negotiations] was €1million a year. Madrid began talks but would not budge."

Lopes also criticised Madrid for their behaviour at the start of Di Maria's spell in Spain: "When he arrived in Madrid, he accepted a lower salary than they promised.

"They promised to improve his contract after six months but took two years to do it."
