Juventus are on the verge of completing two key additions in attack. At the end of their contracts with PSG and Inter Milan respectively, Angel Di Maria and Ivan Perisic reached an agreement with the old lady.
Di Maria is heading for a free start from PSG
The end of the adventure between Angel Di Maria and Paris Saint-Germain is near. On Saturday, welcoming Metz at the Parc des Princes, the 34-year-old attacking midfielder is likely to play his last game in the Paris shirt – his 295th since arriving in 2015 – before flying to Italy.
Di Maria agrees with Juve
As Goal and La Gazzetta dello Sport announced on Tuesday, the Argentine has agreed a one-year contract plus an optional year with Juventus. Pushed to exit by PSG, who failed to trigger their optional year in their lease, El Fideo has an estimated annual salary of between €7.5m and €8m, which could reach €10m with various bonuses unlocked. That’s less than what he gets in Paris (11.4 million euros a year).
Therefore, in order to continue his career in Italy, the native of Rosario has struggled financially. This will allow him to remain in the spotlight for six months at the next World Cup in Qatar. Often banned by the Messi-Neymar-Mbapp trio, Di Maria has played less this season (21 starts in 30 games played) and has a record 4 goals and 8 assists before his last game. All the same honorable stats that no doubt reassured Juve at the level of the player.
Perisic also expected Turin
Di Maria’s arrival will bring experience to a Turin attack that has sometimes been lacking this season following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from Manchester United. With Ivan Perisic (33), who also travels to Piedmont, Juve will have even more. La Gazzetta dello Sport announce an agreement in principle with the Inter Milan attacking midfielder on a two-year contract plus an optional year and an annual salary of €6m.
Despite a very interesting season (9 goals and 9 assists in 48 games), the Croatian was unable to reach an agreement with Inter on an extension at the end of the contract. If his arrival is confirmed, the Split native will have a very interesting solution to put Massimiliano Allegri in the left lane. With Dusan Vlahovic, Federico Chiesa, Di Maria and Perisic, Juve would have enough to field an attractive attack next season.
