Laurent Blanc has admitted that Paris Saint-Germain retain an interest in Manchester United winger Angel di Maria.
The Argentina international was a target for the Ligue 1 champions last summer prior to his move to Old Trafford, and Blanc claimed that his side are still keen on the former Real Madrid star, but accepted that a deal may be unlikely this summer.
PSG coach Blanc told L'Equipe: "We have our priorities. But to strengthen such a team you must target guys who are at big clubs and who are not easy to prise away. That's hardest for PSG.
"Di Maria, he's good. We have more freedom, but it remains a difficult project for us because we're not alone in wanting him. When you see the financial power of the English clubs, they are attacking everyone. Competition is very, very tough.
"Don't forget, Manchester United paid a fortune to sign him. For us to work effectively, we have to think of other solutions. We must be proactive."
Di Maria arrived at Old Trafford for a British record of around £60m last summer.
