Angel di Maria has been at Juventus since 2022 when he joined from Paris Saint-Germain. The 35-year-old’s contract at Juventus is set to expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

The winger has found the back of the net on 8 occasions and picked up 7 assists in 24 matches this season across various competitions.

The 35-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Argentina. As a member of Argentina national football team, Di Maria won 130 caps and he scored 28 goals.

Given that his contract is expiring soon and he has not yet signed an extension, the rumors have only heated up in recent weeks. As things stand, Angel di Maria will be walking away from Juventus on a free transfer at the end of June.

LaLiga giants are delving into the transfer market for an experienced winger and have done well to identify the 35-year-old as a potential target.

Diego Simeone is a firm fan of Juventus winger and Atletico could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.

Someone with Di Maria’s skillset and potential will no doubt be an excellent signing for Atletico Madrid boss.

The former Paris Saint-Germain man will add a new dimension to Atletico Madrid’s attack. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

World Football Rumours

According to the report, “Atletico Madrid have a history of pursuing Argentine recruits since Diego Simeone returned to the helm, while more recently, they have looked to bring in free transfers as they seek to cut costs too. Angel di Maria fits both of those criteria. The 35-year-old World Cup-winner is out of contract in the summer, and while Juventus are reportedly keen to keep him, negotiations have not yet moved on. Di Maria has been in good form for the Bianconeri, scoring 8 times and assisting on 7 occasions in his 24 appearances since joining the Italian side. Todofichajes say that Atletico are interested in recruiting di Maria. They say his agent Jorge Mendes approves of the move, and di Maria would have the chance to return to Spain nine years after leaving Madrid. Juventus may well be without the income from the Champions League next season, and that could affect their means in order to offer di Maria a new deal. Equally, if Mendes is negotiating for a new deal, then it helps to have interest in di Maria made public. From an Atleti perspective, di Maria certainly has the quality to be a useful addition to their side. That said, the Argentine veteran tends to operate in a front three, or at times wider of a 4-2-3-1. Neither of those positions exist in Simeone’s current setup, so signing di Maria might mean altering the system or shoehorning him into it.”

The Spanish giants will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Di Maria to join the club.

Good signing for Atletico Madrid?

Angel di Maria stands as an excellent option for Atletico.

A winger of Angel di Maria’s ceiling will be a massive addition to Atletico Madrid squad as he will not only improve the overall quality of Simeone’s starting XI but also add some stability and variety to his attacking department.

It will be interesting to see where the player ends up this summer.
