Angel Di Maria, the Argentine winger, will leave Juventus as a free agent at the conclusion of the season. In February, the World Cup champion stated that he had not yet negotiated a new contract with Juve.
Juventus’ transfer strategy has reportedly altered. They have chosen a different path and will not involve Di Maria in their plans. There is also speculation that Adrien Rabiot may leave the Turin-based club at the end of the season.
Last season, the former Real Madrid player agreed to a one-year contract extension with the Italian giants. This season, Di Maria has made 38 appearances for the Old Lady. However, he has made 25 starts out of them due to the club’s rigorous schedule.
Juventus are already out from Champions League group stages. Then they advanced to the Europa League semi-finals before losing to Sevilla. Furthermore, because to the capitals-gain scandal, the Italian giants were initially cut 15 points. However, the deduction decreases to 10 points.
Angel Di Maria plans to leave Juventus amid interest from the MLS and Saudi Arabia
Angel Di Maria is likely to depart Juventus as a free agent after only one season in Turin, according to reports.
Following the end of his contract at Paris Saint-Germain, the Argentine World Cup winner signed a one-year agreement with Juventus last summer. Angel Di Maria rejects Juventus FC’s offer for a new deal. After a difficult start to life in Serie A, during which he was sent off in a defeat to Monza for belligerent behavior, Maria’s form significantly improved in the early months of 2023.
Di Maria would go on to play a key role in Juventus’ journey to the UEFA Europa League semi-finals, scoring a hat trick against Nantes in February and a winner against Freiburg the following month.
Di Maria, on the other hand, has gone 14 outings without a single goal contribution and has enraged supporters with his efforts in Juve’s semi-final confrontations against Sevilla.
Contract negotiations between Di Maria’s representation and Juventus for a new one-year agreement have broken down, and the attacker is now likely to quit the club.
According to sources, MLS and Saudi Arabian teams have an eye in the player’s abilities. They want to sign him when he becomes a free agent for the second time this summer.
Di Maria and the club both think that parting ways at the end of the season is the best option.
The 35-year-old formerly played for Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, where he won the UEFA Champions League in 2014.
