According to reports from The Daily Star, Manchester City are awaiting the green light in order to make an offer for Real Madrid's exciting winger Angel Di Maria.

The 25-year-old Argentina star has been scouted by Chelsea and was alleged to be following Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge, but the reports since died down although The Blues are still said to be monitoring the situation. These fresh new reports surfacing on Tuesday state that new City Boss Mauel Pellegrini is waiting for Real Madrid to allow them to make an offer for Di Maria, who could potentially switch from La Liga to experience Premier League football. 

Real Madrid's main target is Tottenham's Gareth Bale, if that move goes through as expected then this will certainly open the door for Di Maria to make his move away from The Bernabeu Stadium. Madrid will hope use it to recoup some of the fees spent on Bale.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will be watching closely with Mourinho having good experience working with Di Maria before and would like the pacy winger at Stamford Bridge. 

City have already added the talents of Fernandinho and Spanish International Jesus Navas to their impressive and scary looking squad in the respect of their rivals. Chelsea however are seeking to add a few new faces in order to mount a serious title challenge this season.
