Di Maria suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's season finale against Hull City, with Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal stating he did not think it was overly serious.

Di Maria got the start Sunday, something that had become rare for him, which was very surprising given the big-money move he made last summer, but he still finished with 10 assists, which tied him for third in the Premier League. He's been rumored to want out of Manchester, with Paris Saint-Germain the most popular landing spot.

Di Maria (knock) is cleared to play Sunday against Arsenal.

Di Maria did not play last weekend against Crystal Palace after picking up a knock in training, but he's been able to practice fully this week, though a spot in the starting XI is hardly guaranteed, even with Wayne Rooney (thigh) out.

Di Maria is out Saturday against Crystal Palace after picking up an injury in training.

Di Maria is a consistent player for United, though he hasn't started in quite some time, which obviously limits his upside. It's unclear how serious the injury is, but di Maria's days in Manchester could be numbered given the extensive transfer rumors already mentioning the Argentine midfielder.

Di Maria came on for Ashley Young in the 70th minute and assisted on Wayne Rooney's 79th-minute goal during Manchester United's 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Di Maria now has one assist in three straight club matches in all competitions, though two have come as a substitute. He now has 10 assists on the season, which is only five short of the club record, which is held by superstar David Beckham. Given how well he's playing, one would think that Di Maria should find his way into the starting XI, though Ander Herrera and Juan Mata are also playing well, giving manager Louis van Gaal big decisions to make heading into next weekend's Manchester derby.

Di Maria is available off the bench for Sunday's match against Liverpool.

Di Maria is eligible to play after a one-match ban, but he apparently doesn't fit into Louis van Gaal plan for the Anfield attack. Juan Mata will get the start in his stead.

Di Maria has been suspended one game for grabbing an official during Monday's FA Cup loss to Arsenal, The Telegraph reports.

Di Maria was lucky to escape with just the single match ban, which means he'll miss Sunday's game against Tottenham and will be eligible to face Liverpool on March 22.

Di Maria started Saturday's Premier League match against Sunderland, but he was pulled at halftime in favor of Adnan Januzaj, finishing with just two shots (none on goal), seven crosses and two key passes.

With Robin van Persie out with an ankle injury, Wayne Rooney moved back up to forward, while di Maria was used out on the right wing. However, he failed to get anything going and was consistently on the ground as if he was injured. Manager Louis van Gaal still hasn't figured out how to use di Maria properly, with many expecting the Argentine to potentially ask out if United don't finish in the top-4.
