What’s next after this ad

A new soap opera. Free since leaving Paris Saint-Germain, Angel Di Maria (34) is looking for a new sporting challenge. Interviewed by the Argentinian media TyC Sportsthe native of Rosario explained on Monday that he had not yet chosen his new club. “I don’t have anything in mind, I’m focusing on the national team, then we’ll see what happens later. The main thing is that my family is well. I have already gone through big clubs, my family has bet on me and followed me everywhere. I will try to find a place where they are happy and I feel happy.”

Everything seemed to direct ADM towards Juventus. For several weeks, the Bianconeri have been negotiating with the Argentine winger. An arrival was even imminent according to the Italian press, which evoked a one-season contract plus an optional year. But for the past few days, the Turinese have been facing a great threat. Indeed, FC Barcelona has been making progress on this file for a few days according to The Chiringuito. The Albiceleste international has the advantage of being free and of knowing La Liga perfectly since his time at Real Madrid.

Di Maria is too old for Barca

A profile that would fit perfectly with what the Culés are looking for, who have some financial worries. But this Wednesday, Mundo Deportivo reveals that the trail leading to Angel Di Maria isn’t as hot as one might think. First of all, the Argentinian offered himself to Barca. It was not the Blaugranas who set off after him. Despite this, they studied this lead with interest. But in their minds, it is not a priority. It is always Raphinha (Leeds) who has the preference of culés leaders to come and replace Ousmane Dembélé, who has not extended his lease.

In addition, MD explains that the age of Di Maria, 34, is a brake for Barca who want to bet on a younger element. Raphinha is 25 years old. The idea is to work for the long term. Recruiting ADM would be for the short term. The Iberian media also adds that with Aubameyang (32) and other potential recruits like Lewandowski (33), Azpilicueta (32) and Marcos Alonso (31), the team will already have a high average age . For all these reasons, Angel Di Maria is not a priority track. Even though Barca keep an eye on him, the idea is still to rejuvenate the team.
