Tottenham approach Angel Di Maria over a potential free transfer in the summer
Di Maria has been one of the top wingers in the game over the past decade. The 32-year-old played three years under the tutelage of Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid and the Portuguese tactician is now eyeing a reunion with the Argentine.
The 32-year-old has been with PSG since 2015, having joined them after a failed stint in England with Manchester United. During his time at the club, the Argentine has amassed 243 appearances, scoring 86 goals and setting up 102 more. (h/t Transfermarkt)
However, his contract with the French champions is set to expire at the end of the season, sparking interest from a host of top clubs across Europe, including Tottenham. In fact, the Lilywhites are already said to have made an approach to try and secure Di Maria’s signing on a free transfer later this year. (h/t Daily Mail)
PSG, though, are hopeful of agreeing on a new contract with the veteran star. The Parisian outfit failed in their bid to tie him down to a new deal last year but will persist in their attempts to secure his future. Di Maria is said to be happy in France and is looking for a two-year contract from the club.
However, if that fails, Tottenham would be a potential destination for the versatile midfielder who won the UEFA Champions League in 2013/14 with Real Madrid. Di Maria shares a good equation with Jose Mourinho and has previously praised the Portuguese tactician.
