Football – Mercato – PSG
At the end of the contract with PSG, Angel Di Maria seemed to be heading slowly but surely towards Juventus. In Italy, however, there has been talk for a few days of a radical change, since the negotiations remain blocked and the Argentinian could now take the direction of FC Barcelona, where Xavi is ready to welcome him with open arms.
The chapter will close on its own on June 30, when the contract forAngel Di Maria will come to an end. Paris Saint-Germain have decided not to lift the additional year as an option and the Argentinian will therefore leave after seven years of good and loyal service. ” I feel a lot of things. The main ones are the emotions, the seven years spent here, seven years of victories, of titles “he explained just after his last match in the colors of the PSG on May 21, facing the FC Metz (5-0). ” I gave everything for this club trying to win as many titles as possible. I believe I have demonstrated it. I proved my worth “. But at 34, his career at the highest level is not over, sinceAngel Di Maria would intend to evolve at least one more year in Europe and in recent weeks it is towards the Juventus that it seemed to be heading, with the Italian press already speaking of a total agreement.

Juventus issue an ultimatum
The enormous Bianconero optimism, however, seems to have turned into pessimism, within a few days. The same media that announced an Angel Di Maria almost from Juventus have backtracked and are now talking about an ultimatum issued to a player who is slow to give his answer. This is the case of The Gazzetta dello Sportwhich ensures that the leaders of the juve would be tired of waiting for a sign from number 11 of the PSG. Tuttosport speaks for his part of a great cold between the two parties, with the Bianconeri who have already started working on an alternative with Domenico Berardi, European champion with Italy and star of Sassuolo.
Xavi’s call seduced Di Maria
The misfortune of some is the happiness of others and this is where FC Barcelona made its appearance. According to information from The Gazzetta dello Sportthere is currently no official offer from the Catalan club, although it has been several weeks sinceAngel Di Maria has in his hands that of the Juventus which covers a two-year contract with a salary of €7 million per year. The Italian daily explains, however, that it is Xavi that would have made the difference! The coach of Barca would have personally called Di Maria to tell him about his project for next season and to offer him a place as a potential starter in his team. The Argentinian would be seduced, he who could compensate for the departure ofOusmane Dembele.
