It seems as if Atletico and Barcelona will be Di Maria’s route back into Spain

Since joining PSG from Man United in 2015, Di Maria has managed to establish himself as a very influential player for the French giants.

In 134 games for Unai Emery’s side, the Argentina star has managed to clock up a total of 50 goals and 55 assists, very impressive record for a player who is predominantly played in midfield.

Some would suggest that both clubs don’t need Di Maria in their ranks next season, however both clubs will surely be looking to improve on their performances in the Champions League, something Di Maria would surely be able to help them with.

If both Barcelona and Atletico are serious about signing Di Maria, we could see the two go head-to-head with each other in order to secure the midfielder’s signature.
