Entered into play during the last 23 minutes on Wednesday at Manchester City in the Champions League, Angel Di Maria failed to avoid the defeat of PSG (2-1) synonymous with 2nd place in group A (but qualifying for the 8th of final).
Arrived in 2015 from Manchester United for a transfer of around 60M €, the 33-year-old Argentinian attacking midfielder, best passer in the history of PSG, has filled his trophy room with 4 French league titles, 5 Cups of France and 4 Coupe de la Ligue.
In an interview with Rothen ignites this Friday on RMC, Angel Di Maria took stock of his future. Last March, he extended his contract until June 2022, with another optional year. "I have an additional year as an option if both parties agree," he said. For my part, it plays out with my age, my goal is to go out the front door, happy, happy. I have already left Real Madrid on bad terms despite winning the Champions League, Manchester United it was the same. If I have to return to Argentine football I hope to leave through the front door of a big club like PSG. "Could he leave during the offseason if PSG touched the grail in C1? "I especially hope to have an extra year," he replied.
"It's not easy in football to stay seven years in the same club"
El Fideo continues on the attachment he has for the club in the capital.
“PSG is a very big club.
When I signed I knew that I would stay here for a long time and that I wanted to.
Each year we try to progress, to achieve the ambitions of the club.
The club has always recruited important players.
The goal is to fight to win the Champions.
That's why I always wanted to stay here.
It's not easy in football to stay at the same club for seven years because sometimes you need a change.
But I have always felt good here, so did my family, so that's the most important thing. "
Finally, the Argentina international returned to his playing time and the possibility of going down to a midfield in a 4-3-3 as he had done at Real Madrid during the Merengue's 10th victory in the Champions League . "I think I have already shown that I can play in this position," he said. It was also my best year at Real in 2014. The coach knows I can play there but after that it is his decisions. He is there to decide and we are there to do the best on the pitch no matter where, in the middle, in front or elsewhere. These are questions for him, me the only thing that I do since I arrived at PSG is to give the maximum when I am on the ground. Of course, I love playing with the ball in my feet. In 2014 I played in the middle and I felt very good, very happy.With in addition to quality players at PSG like Marco (Verratti), Leandro (Paredes) or Gana (Gueye) that could also do it but these are decisions of the coach.
