Di Maria has little time left, Juventus gives deadline

With the closing of the transfer market approaching, Juventus do not want to wait one more day or one day less for the Argentine striker, Ángel Di María, seeing the need to even improve the offer, they have set a deadline to give know your decision which you should notify until this weekend.

Di María has hinted at his inclination for FC Barcelona, ​​to which Juve would put on the table between 6.5 and 7 million fixed euros in addition to a series of extras that would force him to give up tax benefits, to convince the ‘Fideo’ that, wearing the black and white shirt, as revealed by Fabrizio Romano.

The attacker also does not rule out a return to Benfica, where he already played for two seasons (2008-2010) before signing with Real Madrid (2011-14). Now, after ending his long spell at PSG (2015-22) prior to a brief stint at Manchester United (2014/15), Di María wants to continue playing at the highest level with his mind set on the World Cup in Qatar in November 2022.

Few days to be a free agent

Despite the fact that Di María played his last game with Paris Saint-Germain, on May 22, it will not be until June 30 that his contract will be without effect, being that way as a free agent. After 7 seasons with the Parisian team, in 295 games played, 92 goals scored and 112 assists (the highest number of assists in the club’s history), he won five league titles and French Cups, in addition to four League Cups, in total reaching glory 18 times with PSG.

Initially, the Turin team gave the proposal of 4.5 million euros per season with a duration of two years. This was not to the liking of the Argentine, so the ‘bianconeri’ raised the bet with a better salary (5.5 million) and one more year of contract, which did not convince him either. The third, they hope it will be the charm to be able to recruit the ‘Fideo’ who continues in silence.

Juventus alternatives

In case of not being able to sign the former Benfica and Real Madrid player, the team led by Massimiliano Allegri has other options on the table. Such is the case of Domenico Berardi, who has gained prominence at Sassuolo and has established himself in the Italian team in recent years (his cost is around 35 million euros).

Finally, Filip Kostic comes from being one of the sensations of Eintracht Frankfurt, which has just been proclaimed champion of the Europa League. Its price is estimated close to 24 million euros. Nicolò Zaniolo is also on the agenda; however, the attacker is a key piece in José Mourinho’s Roma, so the ‘giallorossi’ could demand an amount greater than 33 million euros.
