After leaving Real Madrid in 2014, there were voices in Spain that tagged her husband as a mercenary, recalled Jorgelin Cardoso, Angel Di Maria’s wife.
Cardoso claimed that Manchester United kept an offer to Angel which he could not let it down, reports Marca.
“Angel played in what is, for me, the best team in the world,” said Jorgelin
“We were perfect; the weather was perfect and the food fantastic.
“One day Angel came and told me, ‘An offer came in from Manchester’.
“I said no bloody way and warned him he was going alone.”
“He replied, ‘Yes, we are going’.
“There was a lot of money and the Spanish came out to call us mercenaries. And yes, we were.”
“If you work in a company and the rivals offer you double pay, you will go running.”
