Ángel Di María set to join Benfica from Juventus


Ángel Di María is set to join Benfica from Juventus, per reports from Fabrizio Romano on Wednesday.

An agreement has been completed and sealed on both parts, and the documents will be signed later today. The Argentine’s contract would be for one year.

After his season with Juventus and his time in Argentina, playing in Maxi Rodriguez’s and Riquelme’s testimonials, Di María will reportedly return to Benfica. He previously played there from 2008 to 2010 before joining Real Madrid. The Portuguese team had bought him from Rosario Central when he was 22 years old and helped him make his first steps in Europe.

A good move from “el fideo” since he needs to continue competing among the elite if he wants to be part of Argentina’s team for next year’s Copa America in the United States.
