Di Maria goes on stage

It is not the first time that his name has been associated with Barcelona. Ángel Di María is once again in the orbit of the Barça team and is one of the options managed by the sports management to reinforce the right wing. although not the priority. The Argentine finishes his contract this year with PSG and would arrive at the Camp Nou with the letter of freedom, an interesting option for the Catalan entity, beset by its serious financial problems and the fair play of LaLiga. In any case, the international is one of the alternatives that are contemplated if finally Ousmane Dembélé cannot be renewed or Raphinha can be hired. It is necessary to remember the difficulties that Barcelona is finding to close the continuity of the French

, who in England is already placed in Chelsea, and the economic demands that Leeeds demands to get rid of Raphinha. The English club is not willing to go below 55 million euros, a figure unaffordable at the moment for Laporta.

Just as Dani Alves did, who agreed to play for Barcelona with a very low contract, Di María is determined to put the sporting project before the financial one, above all because, at 34 years old, he knows that playing at the Camp Nou would open up the gates of the World Cup in Qatar. For this reason he is willing to sign only one year with the Barça club, although Juventus is the team that is showing the most interest in signing him. The transalpine club is pressuring the footballer to give a response to the offer they have made him but Di María, who is focused on his selection, is lengthening his response while he waits for the culé proposal to arrive. Although he knows that he is not Xavi Hernandez's first choice, he is aware that Barcelona's poor financial situation could be an ace up his sleeve.

Barcelona already tried to sign him five seasons ago but Di Maria did not finish taking the step and PSG did not even consider the option of transferring him. The French club had paid 63 million a year earlier for the Argentine, making him the second most expensive signing in Ligue 1. The player is an old acquaintance of the Spanish League, since he played for four seasons at Real Madrid, where he played 190 matches and scored 36 goals. The white club paid Benfica 25 million plus 11 in variables in 2010 and four years later transferred him to Manchester United for 75 million plus 15 in variables.
