It has been known for some time, and now it has been officially confirmed. Angel Di Maria is the new reinforcement of Juventus, with whom he initialed the cooperation until next summer. He will earn 7,000,000 euros, and the Bianconeri will have to pay 1,300,000 euros for the player's registration.
The former player of Benfica, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Paris Saint-germain was offered a two-year contract, but he wanted to sign for only one year. For now, there is no information whether the contract includes an option for another one.
Fideo joins the ranks of the Old Lady as a free agent, since his contract with PSG has expired. There were rumors that he could go to Barcelona, ââbut in the end, he ended up in Juventus under his own terms.
Di Maria brings quality and experience. His main task will be to find Dusan VlahoviÄ with the final passes, who was cut off in the attack last season without real playmakers and often played alone against everyone.
Juventus' plan is that Di Maria, Chiesa and Filip KostiÄ or Nicolo Zaniolo, whose transfers are still being worked on, will supply the Serbian striker with balls this season.
Di Maria's career
The experienced Argentine started his professional career 17 years ago in Rosario Central.

This was followed by a transfer to Manchester United for 75,000,000 euros, which at that time was one of the biggest transfers in history and a record transfer for British clubs. Di Maria didn't shine there. He did not manage at Old Trafford, just one year later he moved to Paris for 65,000,000 euros.
He was the champion of France five times, won the French Cup on the same number of occasions, the League Cup four times, as well as the Champions Trophy. He also played in the Champions League final with the Saints two years ago.
