TyC Sports: Milan tried for Di Maria before he chose Juventus – the background

By Oliver Fisher -

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.

  1. BS article. He doesn’t fit any criteria of what we were looking for. Not young, injury prone, not fast enough.

    He is good of course, also he was free.
    But our RW needs someone young fast and on the rise of career.

  2. Ya sure. We “tried to sign a lot of players – but when we find out the player wants more than 3.5M a season or the player’s club wants 20M plus to sell – we “try” for someone else LOL. Fkn disgrace

  3. Not suit with pioli tactic high press. Di maria cannot press and lacking stamina. His slow pace similar to suso. His salary are high too
