The Argentine winger played an

instrumental role in last Saturday's

Champions League final as Madrid

clinched their 10th European crown -

'La Decima' - with a 4-1 victory over

city rivals Atletico.

Di Maria had been expected to leave

Madrid following the world record

£86m addition of Gareth Bale last


The 26-year-old remained at the

Bernabeu following Bale's arrival,

however the former Benfica star is

not certain he will be at Madrid

next season.

"I am not going to lie, I know that

there are clubs that want to sign me

and can match Real Madrid's

demands," Di Maria told MARCA .

"But that's up to my representatives

and the club. I will stay if the club

wants me to stay.

"I am not thinking about my future

now. We will see what Madrid have

in mind, whether they want me to

stay or leave.

"I am happy at Madrid. I had a

great season and always had

everybody's support.

"But sometimes you don't have a

choice, even when you want to stay


Arsenal, City and United are all

weighing up summer bids to lure Di

Maria to the Premier League.

Big-spending French clubs Monaco

and PSG are also ready to step up

their interest in Di Maria, who is set

to link-up with the Argentina

national squad ahead of next

month's World Cup in Brazil.
