Departing Paris Saint-Germain forward Angel Di Maria has said that he doesn’t mind donning a Barcelona shirt despite being a Real Madrid player at one time in his career

Angel DI Maria has publicly claimed that he doesn’t have a problem with playing for Barcelona despite his Real Madrid past. Barcelona and Real Madrid are fierce rivals and it’s often unthinkable for players to play for both clubs.

Di Maria will be a free agent at the end of the month after a glorious seven years at Paris Saint Germain. PSG has chosen not to renew his contract and Di Maria is on the hunt for a new club.

Juventus were leading the race to sign the Argentinian attacker but The Sun reported that Di Maria had okayed a move to Barcelona. He was a Real Madrid player before heading to Manchester United which didn’t turn out quite well.

Di Maria has gone ahead and confessed that he almost joined the Catalans in 2018 as quoted by the Mirror.

My relationship with Madrid is finished because my cycle there ended. Frankly, I wouldn’t have a problem playing at Barca, on the contrary.

I was close to joining Barcelona in the summer and yet far away at the same time. It is hard to complete moves to these clubs. I never lost hope of it going through but in the end, it didn’t happen.

Barcelona are at the moment looking for stop-gap players who can help Xavi Hernandez rebuild. They are still embroiled in a deep financial mess and cannot splash money on players. Di Maria’s experience will be a welcome addition to a side that is still reeling from the effects of Lionel Messi’s departure.
