According to Fabrizio Romano, Juventus are on the verge of completing the transfer of Angel Di Maria from Paris Saint-Germain. The Italian giants are on the verge of announcing the completion of the Paul Pogba deal but are already setting up Di Maria as their next priority target.

Juventus are waiting on the go-ahead from the Argentine’s camp, but the 34-year-old is thought to be keen on a move to Turin.

Angel Di Maria: Juventus Step Up Their Interest in Argentine Star


Di Maria to Bolster Juventus

The 34-year-old Argentina international looks set to embark on a fresh challenge as his contract in Paris is due to expire this summer.

Juventus have earmarked the ex-Manchester United winger as their next priority after the completion of the Pogba deal. Di Maria has recently described Juventus as ‘the biggest club in Italy’ during an interview with ESPN about a potential move to Turin.

Barcelona have also expressed a strong interest in signing the experienced winger. Despite this, it seems he is Serie A bound. No other clubs are thought to have a real chance of signing him, with a final decision likely to come from the Argentine star after he returns from a family holiday.

What Di Maria Would Bring to Juventus

PSG signed Di Maria in 2015 for £59.7 million, rescuing him from his Old Trafford nightmare. The Argentine veteran was influential in helping the club win five Ligue 1 titles, three French Super Cups and three French Cups during his time in Paris.

Juventus finished a distant fourth in Serie A last season, which would have undoubtedly disappointed everyone associated with the club. The signing of the former Manchester United winger will bring a winning mentality to a Juventus team whose pride will be wounded.

He would bring a cutting edge to The Old Lady who finished 16 points behind champions AC Milan. Di Maria has scored an impressive 93 goals in 295 appearances while providing 118 assists.
