French giant Paris Saint-Germain offered their star man Angel di Maria to the Chinese clubs as they were unimpressed by his poor run in the league.
The 29-year-old midfielder, who joined the capital club in 2015, was a revelation in his first season as he managed to net 10 goals in his 29 Ligue 1 appearances, but this season has been nothing short of a disaster as he has only grabbed two goals thus far.
As per the Sun, the former Real Madrid and Manchester United man was offered to several Chinese clubs and his agent Jorge Mendes was told to take the speculation further. The Portuguese man-manager was pictured in China, but it remains to be seen who will be making a move to the far east as his other clients – James Rodriguez and Diego Costa – are facing an uncertain future as well.
Furthermore, the French news outlet L’Equipe via GFFN claimed that was not happy with the incident as all of it happened without his permission. A source close to the player was quoted by the aforementioned outlet as saying:
“Angel did not really appreciate it. He found it disrespectful and out of place.”
The 29-year-old lost his strides completely until he stepped on to the field to face his old nemesis FC Barcelona on the evening of Valentine’s day and the Argentine took the game by storm as he scored a fantastic brace to help his side establish a comfortable cushion going into the second leg of the game.
To add to the situation, the French news outlet L’Equipe claimed that PSG’s board along with former Barcelona icon Patrick Kluivert agreed to launch a move for the player following their humiliating 3-0 setback at Montpellier in December.
The manager Unai Emery, on his part, has also reportedly given the green signal and what does the future hold for Di Maria now remains to be seen.
