Angel Di Maria has stated that he has numerous offers, but that the issue of whether he stays or leaves is up to Real Madrid.

In an interview with Marca Di Maria stated, "I am not going to lie, I know that there are clubs that want to sign me and can match Real Madrid's demands. But that's up to my representatives and the club. I will stay if the club wants me to stay."

"I am not thinking about my future now. We will see what Madrid have in mind, whether they want me to stay or leave.

"I am happy at Madrid. I had a great season and always had everybody's support. But sometimes you don't have a choice, even when you want to stay put yourself."

"Many things have been said about me. Sometimes it hurts when you see all the rumours that you are leaving. These are difficult moments for a player. I remained calm, though.

"I spoke with Ancelotti last summer. I wanted to stay put and he wanted me to stay as well. He told me that he counted on me and it was up to me from there on.

"I have grown a lot under Ancelotti. He got the best out of me. Things have gone well and I made the right decision to stay."
