Laurent Blanc says that PSG will not prolong their interest in Angel di Maria amid pressure to comply with FFP regulations.

Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc has ruled out a move for Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria due to the financial ramifications of such a transfer.

In May, the big-spending French club were fined for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations, hindering their pursuit of the £50m-rated Argentine.

Di Maria, who has four years remaining on his Blancos deal, has signalled his intention to leave the Bernabeu recently, but Blanc says that Paris is not an option for him.

"With large players like Di Maria, there are a lot of clubs behind him certainly," he told L'Equipe.

"PSG cannot do what it wants in terms of recruitment [because of FFP]. This is a difficult issue, the president has confirmed to me."

Manchester United have also been linked with a move for the 26-year-old.
