Former Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon heaped big praise on ex-PSG teammate Angel Di Maria labeling him as ” Diego Maradona for the Serie A “. The Italian legend spent a year at PSG with the Argentine and was not shy in admitting that he will be the difference-maker in Italy. The Bianconeri have come in as one of the favorites to sign the 34-year-old on a free transfer.
The PSG winger has been one of the best in the world in his position for a long time now. But his time at PSG seems over as the Parisians have decided to not renew his contract further. Juventus have made their move, offering him a one-year deal with an option to extend it further. The Former Madrid star is determined to still play at the top level and perform for his nation at the 2022 WC in the best way and then return to Argentina.
Buffon also commented on the way of playing the Argentine maestro.
” He is decisive in front of goal , he dribbles past his opponents so easily. He is good at delivering assists and runs up and down on the pitch. He is can play in different roles. If he joins Juventus , he would be the Maradona for today’s Serie A. He is a very technical player and Serie A needs such Technical talents.”
Di Maria has been a vital part of a PSG squad filled with stars and has never quite got the recognition for his contribution. He also played a vital part in La Decima, 2014, helping Madrid conquer Europe. Age is catching up to the Argentine star but he will be looking to make a big impact in Europe with the zeal and motivation he shows in every match and Italy might be the next destination.
Barca Looking To Add Di Maria To Their Squad
Spanish giants Barcelona are looking to offer a 2-year contract to the PSG star and lure him away from Juventus. The Argentine, having played for Real Madrid, is open to joining Barca as he is highly appreciated by Xavi. The Blaugranas are looking to replace Ousmane Dembele who is more close to leaving than staying. Di Maria is thought of as a short-term but quality replacement for the Frenchman. It remains to be seen who will be able to get Di Maria who is really in high demand in Europe.
