Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel di Maria is set to be a free agent at the end of the season.

The Argentina international has been strongly linked with a move to Juventus, before Barcelona came into the picture.

Di Maria is believed to have agreed terms verbally with Juventus, but is now eyeing up a transfer to Barcelona.

Di Maria spent four years as a Real Madrid player before a failed move to Manchester United where he spent only one season and struggled to perform.

The Argentina international then made the move to PSG, where he had been since 2015.

Angel di Maria has admitted that he is open to a move to the Nou Camp, even though he had donned the shirt of Barca’s biggest rival, Real Madrid.

Di Maria told ESPN Argentina: “Juventus are the biggest club in Italy, they are one of the teams that are interested in me.

“Right now, I’m thinking, but I’m focusing on holidays and family. FC Barcelona, a possible destination? Barca, yes, it’s one of the best clubs in the world too.

Di Maria scored 93 goals and provided 119 assists in 295 appearances for PSG, and helped them win five Ligue 1 titles, five Coupe de France titles, and four Coupe de la Ligue titles.

Di Maria might be 34 now, but he has shown that he’s still a top class player.
