Manchester United boss admits he has “no idea” of the whereabouts of club-record signing Angel Di Maria.
Argentina midfielder Di Maria, a £59.7m buy from Real Madrid last summer, failed to return for pre-season training on Saturday as scheduled and it is understood talks are ongoing with PSG about a move to the French champions.
Asked if he knew where the 27-year-old was, Van Gaal said: “Maybe you know.”
When the journalist said he did not, Van Gaal said: “I don’t know either.”
Speaking after the match, PSG coach Laurent Blanc said: “Manchester United and PSG are two big clubs and negotiations can be difficult, but we are close to the end.”
Blanc added it was up to United to say whether his club has been given permission to speak to Di Maria.
