Angel Di Maria Finally Gives His Answer to Juventus

Angel Di Maria appears to have made up his mind and has accepted the contract offered by Juventus. The Bianconeri quickly pursued him once PSG officialized his departure. However, the player took his time, perhaps waiting for Barcelona or other teams.

The parties are still negotiating the bonuses. But the agreement is its home stretch, and the winger is set to join, Goal’s Romeo Agresti informs. A hint came from Instagram, as his wife started following the Bianconeri. His representatives confirmed to La Stampa.

“We are discussing the final details. We are waiting for the green light on some elements.”

Di Maria will most likely ink a one-year contract with Juventus. He will earn €7M plus bonuses unless that changes in the later stages of the talks. It is unclear whether there will be the option as the outfit wanted. The 34-year-old intends to return to Rosario Central next summer.

The Old Lady will not stop at El Fideo up front. As per Alfredo Pedullà, they will have a meeting with Roma this week to examine the acquisition of Nicolò Zaniolo. Moreover, Filip Kostic has turned down an extension with Eintracht Frankfurt and is eager to join. Although, the Old Lady needs to bargain to lower his price tag.

Our Take on Juventus Signing Di Maria

The saga has been unnecessarily long and dramatic considering it is a free-agent signing, but the Bianconeri are getting their man. The Argentine and Paul Pogba increase the star power of the squad, facilitating the job of Massimiliano Allegri, whose role is as meaningful as ever within the team. Zaniolo might become an opportunity if they cooked up a favorable deal with Roma. However, they would be better off bringing in a left-flank specialist such as Kostic next.
