Angel Di Maria insists he wants to stay at Paris Saint-Germain despite initial problems with manager Unai Emery

Paris Saint-Germain star Angel Di Maria says he wants to remain at the club despite interest from Serie A giants Inter Milan.

Di Maria, who joined PSG from Manchester United for £44million in 2015, is reportedly a transfer target for Inter this summer should they sell Ivan Perisic.

However despite the speculation Di Maria insists he is happy to stay in the French capital, though he admits he is unsure of PSG’s position on his future.

‘For me, there’s no doubt about it. I want to stay,’ he told Le Parisien via FourFourTwo. ‘But, for the club, I don’t know.

‘The reality is that my family are well and I’m happy in Paris’.

Unai Emery replaced Laurent Blanc at the helm for the start of the 2016-17 season but PSG sacrificed their Ligue 1 title to Monaco.

They were also knocked out in the Champions League in humiliating circumstances as Barcelona overturned a four-goal deficit in their last 16 second leg clash by thrashing them 6-1 at the Nou Camp.

On a personal note, Di Maria struggled to adapt to life under his new coach and scored just once in the first 19 league games of the season.

And the winger admits that there were initial problems between himself and Emery as PSG endured a relatively unsuccessful campaign.

‘I know that not everything went well last season. At first, I didn’t quite understand what the coach was asking me,’ added Di Maria.

‘Then we gradually got to know each other and I think people have seen the change in the last few months. I hope I can reproduce that this year.’

PSG completed the free transfer signing of Manchester City target Dani Alves last week after the Brazilian left Juventus following one season in Italy.

And Di Maria is excited by the prospect of linking up with former Barcelona right back Alves, who is the second arrival at the Parc des Princes after Yuri Berchiche joined from La Liga side Real Sociedad.

‘I’ve only played against him. But I’m happy with his signing as he is a player with huge qualities, who will bring something extra to the team and allow us to improve further,’ he added.
