Barcelona are set for a massive transfer bid to sign Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel di Maria as reports from Spain suggest that the Blaugrana are ready to pay €90 Million for the Argentine.
According to Don Balon, the Catalan club is set to make a sensational bid to sign the former Real Madrid and Manchester United player who has shown a lot of promise and character during his stay at Real Madrid before being sold out to Manchester United in 2014 for then British record fee of €70 million.
The 29-year old is in extraordinary form with French giants Paris Saint Germain this season and have drawn a lot of interest from abroad after renewing his career with a move to Paris a couple of years ago. He has shown his abilities to Barcelona as his incredible movement with the ball as well as off the ball has ensured that they won 4-0 against Barca in the first leg of Round of 16 Champions League clash.
Di Maria has ensured that he stood out as a player for PSG this season and has even looked good in their 6-1 defeat to Barcelona in Camp Nou earlier last month. After falling out with Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, he has moved to French league and has found his previous form after signing a four year deal with PSG back in 2015.
Now, with only two years left in his contract, a €90 Million bid will be a huge offer for PSG and it might be enough to tempt the club into accepting the transfer. Barcelona is looking to make massive changes to their squad in the summer and the arrival of a new manager would be one of them as well.
Barca hierarchy believes that the addition of di Maria to their midfield will make them one of the fiercest attacking sides in the world. However, it remains to be seen whether PSG will be ready to sell their most important player this season as they are financially very stable and are under no pressure to sell any players unless they want to.
The Spanish giants could instead opt for Marco Verratti who is speculated to leave PSG in summer as a number of big European clubs are monitoring the situation of the Italian midfielder.
