Chelsea are reportedly interested in Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder Angel Di Maria, with Don Balon stating that the Blues are considering an approach for the former Manchester United attacker.
The Stamford Bridge club brought in four new faces to bolster their first-team squad over the summer, but the West London outfit have suffered an inconsistent start to the new Premier League campaign.

There is a feeling that Antonio Conte’s project at the club will be an evolving one and inevitably this will include the purchase of new players in the next two transfer windows.
Di Maria is an undoubtedly top-class operator who has shone at the highest levels of club and international football over the years.
A solitary season at United did not materialise for a number of reasons, with the Argentine sold after 12 months on the Red Devils’ books.
Chelsea bringing Di Maria back to the Premier League would be just as shocking as the Londoners resigning his former team-mate David Luiz and as such the rumbling would best be taken with a pinch of salt.
With Conte most likely to switch to a 3-5-2 formation, just where the South American winger would fit into the system remains to be seen.
