PSG attacker Angel-Di Maria’s future with the club could be in doubt, as the French giants look to balance the books following the record deals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. According to TMV, the Argentine is not in Unai Emery’s plans and could leave the Parc-des-Princes next summer.
The Parisians are also looking to ship off another Argentinian midfield in Javier Pastore in the upcoming January window as well. However, many suitors will line up in the queue as they look to prise away the unhappy Argentinian superstar in Angel di Maria next summer.
But considering how his move to Manchester United failed a few seasons ago, should any PL club be interested in the services of the former Real Madrid star?
The Argentinian has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular under head coach Unai Emery, often being overlooked, thanks to the impeccable midfielder partnership of Marco Verratti and Thiago Motta. The meteoric rise of midfielder Adrien Rabiot hasn’t helped his cause either.
While China is the most likely destination for Di Maria, Chelsea might fancy signing the highly-rated attacking midfielder. The Blues are in danger of losing their best attacker Eden Hazard to Real Madrid next summer, as Los Blancos step up their pursuit of the Belgian International.
Di Maria could be an instant upgrade to Pedro, who hasn’t been all that impressive either. The 29-year-old has the talent to prevail on English soil and can still offer Chelsea a lot going forward. Although the former Manchester United flop came under heavy fire, following a string of disappointing performances on the French shores, things might change under the leadership of Antonio Conte.
Angel Di Maria’s pace and trickery will be valuable for this Chelsea side, which is struggling to find much spark in the offensive department. Furthermore, Di Maria could also be instilled as the central midfielder alongside N’Golo Kante. His excellent passing range coupled with his technique will help Chelsea dominate the midfield against the opposition.
Arsenal could also be a logical destination for the former Real Madrid attacker. The Gunners are set to lose two of their most important offensive players next summer, and Angel Di Maria could be the apt replacement for either of Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil at the Emirates.
