Almost a decade after, Di Maria's wife still remains scarred of their experience in Manchester.

"People are all weird. You walk around and you don't know if they're going to kill you." Jorgelina said as quoted by Daily Star.
"The food is disgusting. The women look like porcelain."
She added: "Angel and I were in Madrid, at the best team in the world, perfect food, perfect weather, everything was perfect. And then came United's proposal...
"I told him 'no way, no way', but he kept saying we will be a little more financially secure and we have to go.
"We fought about it… We try to be closer when things go wrong.
"I don't blame him for going there. It was horrible, so horrible. I just told him, 'Darling, I want to kill myself, it's nighttime at two o'clock."

Di Maria's wife opens up on the real reason why his husband joined Man United

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that the wife of Angel Di Maria, Jorgelina Cardoso, has revealed he advised the Juventus forward against joining Manchester United.

Di Maria joined United in the 2014-15 season but his stint proved less successful as compared to his spell at Real Madrid - making only 27 appearances and contributing with three goals during his time in England.
