Di Maria closes in on Juventus move: the details of the deal

Angel Di Maria is closing in on a move to Juventus on a free transfer, according to Football Italia sources.

The Argentina winger’s contract at Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of the season and he is expected to leave the club after seven seasons in France.

Juve have been heavily linked with a move for Di Maria and Football Italia can reveal he a deal is close.

Di Maria will receive a one-year contract with the option of a further 12 months and a salary of €7 million net per year.

The short contract means Juve cannot use the Growth Decree – a tax relief which only comes into affect over a three-year period.

The 34-year-old joined PSG from Manchester United in 2015 and has won five league titles.

Prior to his move to England, he spent four seasons at Real Madrid where he won a LaLiga title, the Champions League and the Copa del Rey.

Di Maria was also part of the Argentina team that reached the 2014 World Cup final.

His arrival would coincide the departure of compatriot Paulo Dybala from Juventus.

  1. Way to go Allegri and Agnelli!
    Indeed, why waste the time and invest in the young players when you can spend tons of money and sign 34-old free agent!

  2. This reminds me of the path the Old milan took with free agents big salaries old ageds finished players lol Juve

  3. So according to Fossil Allegri playing di maria on the right wing is a better idea than playing Ake or Soule ? Lol

  4. @Brian don’t forget Kulusevski.

    Allegri probably already having wet dreams when he can deploy Di Maria and Perisic next season

  5. If true, it shows what absolute tools run these Italian clubs.

    Pogba too, another waster who has hardly broken into a sweat in five years.

    The awful signings coming into Serie A is one of the main reasons not many take it seriously anymore and see it as a spent force.

    Player recruitment is the most important facet of any club, and Serie A sides get it wrong far to often.

  6. It doesn’t look a bad deal to me. Crucially it’s a one year contract. He can play in a number of positions too.

    I image he is seen as a useful squad player rather than first choice

  7. Recruitment has been questionable, some stinkers but some good signings also… (Vlahovic, De Ligt, Chiesa)

    The bigger problem is Allegri. It does not matter who Juventus sign because he will insist on negative mismanagement of players and tactics. Ask yourselves, who has he ever got the best out of? Who has improved under his stewardship?

    Di Maria on a free for one year isn’t too bad, even at 34. He’s generally fit and should adapt well enough to serie a

  9. Not many will support this…this kind of transfer does not build a team because after another year he will be gone and leave it void with a youngster to start over

  10. Will serie a ever learn? It’s like our football has some sort of addiction to just getting old foreign players on the cheap then everyone wonders why we win nothing, italian football needs to stop taking the mick seriously grow some brain cells ffs

  11. Worst deal ever! Juventus, please change your team architect.

    Younger and better crossers + wingers than di Maria according to statistics: Moussa Diaby and Heug Min Son

  12. I’ll take this deal. Reading these comments you’d think Di Maria is in a wheel chair. He’s still got his pace, still got his natural dribbling abilities and he adds something Juve lack and that is someone who will create chances for the strikers. he also won’t unbalance the team. With him and Chiesa flanking Vlahovic I expect Dusan to score 30+ goals next season.

  13. Self proclaimed football experts at FI comments section proving that they don’t know anything about the game.
    This is an obvious,obvious short term stopgap so that Juve can bring in a better, younger forward, maybe Zaniolo or Raspadori in 2023 summer transfer window for a much lesser amount than what their clubs are asking now.
    Also, you seem to forget that Chiesa will be back from injury in a few month’s time.
    Signing him will also help youngsters like Ake and Soulé.

  14. CALMAAAAA!!! Di Maria is not that old for PhD Max. In fact inside the Grandmeister’s dossier, 37 is the preferred age, so Angel is still 3 years too young. Juve are going to back bigger, older, slower and wiser then ever before. The Dutch Phil Jones will never handle the ball or touch another defender in the box again. Alex Side to Side Sandro will channel his inner Cafu and become the greatest marauding left back to back that has ever been seen. The same goes for Man City icon Cafu on the other side.
    Last but not least the Commander, Mister, Maestro and Leader of the back, back, down, down. Neve will PhD Omicron Max look for a 1-0, 0-0 , 1-1 or 2-1 result. He has learnt his ways and will only pack up shop after 65 minutes lol.

  15. So Juventus let go Dybala when they agreed a contract for more or less what Di Maria will earn?

    And also they sell Kulusevski who is better than this guy currently

    Juventus is a clown house

  16. Oh look, the Allegri clown is back.
    Seriously, how long are you going to keep this up?
    All of Juve’s last 4 signings are under your supposed “Allegri’s Golden Age” of 37.
    You also seem to have missed the memo that Alex Fail Sandro is most probably leaving Juve.
    P.S:- Next time, compare Alex Sandro to Roberto Carlos…. will earn you a few more lols.

  17. The club is being destroyed one piece at a time by Allegri, Agnelli and the football maestro Arrivabene…these guys are such forward thinkers!!!
