Manchester United have announced the signing of Angel Di Maria on a five-year deal.

United announced they had broken the British transfer record by signing the winger for £59.7m from Real Madrid.

Posting the news on Twitter, the club revealed: "Manchester United is delighted to announce that Angel Di Maria has completed his transfer for a British record fee of £59.7million. Angel joins on a five-year contract."

The fee surpasses the previous record of £50m, which Chelsea set when they bought Fernando Torres from Liverpool in January 2011.

Di Maria become United's fourth signing on the summer, following Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo in putting pen to paper at Old Trafford.
