Ángel Di María in advanced talks with Juventus


Ángel Di María is in advanced talks to join Juventus.

Di María appears to be getting closer to joining the Italian club. Per a report by La Gazzetta dello Sport, he has accepted their offer with final details left to be discussed.

The Argentine has a contract with PSG until June 30 and while there were possible reports of him possibly joining FC Barcelona, Juventus now appears to be his destination.



    Former Juventus star Gigi Buffon hopes the Bianconeri sign his ex-teammate Angel Di Maria: ‘He’d be like Diego Maradona for Serie A.’

    The legendary goalkeeper spent one year at PSG with Di Maria and he is convinced that the Argentina international will make the difference in Italy.

    “Right now, Di Maria in Serie A, is like Maradona. Am I clear?” Buffon told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

    Di Maria is available as a free agent after the end of his contract with PSG. Juventus have made their move, offering a one-year deal with an option for a further campaign. However, the Argentinean star seems determined to remain in Europe just for one season, play at the World Cup, and return to Argentina at the end of the 2022-23 campaign.

    Therefore, talks with the Bianconeri have been put on hold, but Juventus are confident that El Fideo will make a final decision this week.

    “Footballers must be valued considering the context where they play. Today Serie A is technically poorer and Angel has so much technique,” said Buffon.

    “He is decisive in front of goal, he dribbles past his opponents so easily. He is good at delivering assists and runs up and down on the pitch. He can play in different roles. In a few words: he is a football player.”

    Di Maria turned 34 in February, but Buffon doesn’t seem his age as a problem for either he or Juventus.

    “I am 44, but I still play. Age doesn’t matter. Motivation and passion are much more important and the same goes for determination. If Di Maria joins Juventus, it means that he’s ready to do so,” he said.

    “We are talking of an exemplary professional, a nice guy, one who never gives up and fights during games and training sessions. I repeat, for today’s Serie A, he’d be like Maradona.

    “At PSG, I played with Neymar, a young Kylian Mbappé, Marco Verratti…but Di Maria was not inferior to any of them,” Buffon continued.

    “When he won the Decina at Madrid in 2014, he was playing with Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luk Modric and Toni Kroos. He was always a step back but knew how to play as a winger, attacking midfielder and even Mezzala. Whoever signs him, and I hope it’s Juve, makes a deal. We are talking about a champion and football needs champions.”

  2. Arsenal is super aggressive. After securing Gab Jesus, they submit a bit of €40 m and adds on for Licha Martinez, but Ajax wants €50 m for him. They also want to buy Raphinha. I think it is just a matter of time before we see Licha Martinez play in EPL.

    Arsenal-Hotspur rivalry is like Boca-River London version. So it will be very interesting to see Cuti vs Licha next season. It would be just like Madrid’s Di Maria vs Barca Messi in la liga back then.

    Man EPL top and mis table teams just get stronger and stronger.

    • Yeah and it is evident even in their last season journey. Arsenal crushed spurs in their first meeting but eventually spurs got the UCl spot. Arsenal started the season with 3 consecutive failures and spurs started the season with 3 consecutive wins showing their rivalry even in the results 😂. Yeah i think nuno was the manager of the month in August or something and fired after 2 months😂😂

  3. This is a good move. He is a legend. What clubs have he played for – Benfica, Madrid, Man U, PSG, Juve – top notch, historic career.

    Best of luck Fideo. Stay healthy and strong as we need the goal in the final of the WC 🙂

    • I have been following a lot of EPL forum (hotspur, Arsenal, City etc). It is interesting, most English fans think that Di Maria is a legendary winger, one of the best in the world. They think Raphina is a bit similar to him.
