Paris Saint-Germain will visit Real Madrid on Wednesday evening and that means a return to the Spanish capital for Ángel Di Maria. The Argentinean attacker was under contract with the Royal Netherlands between 2010 and 2014, after which he ended up in Paris via Manchester United. Despite his history at Real Madrid, Di Maria has no warm feelings for the club.
My relationship with Real Madrid ended when I left there. It would not be a problem for me to play for Barcelona, frankly. I can’t actually play for Newell’s Old Boys alone, because I am a fan of Rosario Central,”says Di Maria in conversation with So Foot. The attacker keeps annoying memories of his departure from the Royal. When he heard that, he was with the Argentine team on the World Cup 2014.
In the quarterfinals against Belgium Di Maria had fallen injured, so he wouldn’t play the final,”I got a letter from Real Madrid on the day of the World Cup final in 2014. It stated that the Argentinean union would be responsible if something happened to me in the final. I did read that letter, but then immediately torn apart”, the attacker concludes. Paris Saint-Germain first goes to Real Madrid in the eighth Champions League finale, the return in Paris awaits three weeks later.
Who do you think will reach the next round of the Champions League?
