AC Milan came forward and expressed an interest in signing Angel Di Maria on a free transfer but he now seems set to join rivals Juventus, a report claims.
TyC Sports in Argentina report that Di María will finally be a new Juventus player in the next few hours. After his departure from PSG and a long negotiation with the Bianconeri he seems finally ready to try a new experience in Italy.
Barcelona have been most concretely linked as competition but the report claims that it was Milan who were the first and most interested in signing the Argentine, but some issues delayed the negotiation.
Benfica and Barcelona then came forward but a formal offer to the 34-year-old never arrived. The Rossoneri tried to convince him to sign a two-year deal, but Di Maria made it clear that he wanted to sign just one year.
