United had already spent around 72 million pounds ($119 million) during the close season on Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo, but di Maria's arrival from Real Madrid for 59.7 million pounds saddles him with very different pressures.Di Maria can operate in the center of the pitch, but if van Gaal is determined to use Juan Mata as a No. 10, it would leave him with only one berth in the team for an orthodox central midfielder.While he is not especially prolific, having never scored more than seven league goals in his seven seasons in Europe, he topped the La Liga assists chart in 2013-14 with 17 decisive passes.He will address United's pressing need for a force in midfield, and although he is better suited to playing on the wing or on the left of a midfield three, former club captain Gary Neville is convinced he will succeed.
