Ángel Di María

Juventus fans have turned out in their numbers to welcome Angel Di Maria ahead of his imminent move to the club.

The 34-year-old landed in the Italian city on Thursday evening ahead of undergoing a medical on Friday.

And his arrival was met with much fanfare, with Di Maria signing the shirts and scarves of jubilant supporters of the Serie A giants at the Allianz Stadium.

Di Maria has spent the last seven years at Paris Saint-Germain, where he won 14 major trophies – including five Ligue 1 titles – before leaving the club as a free agent at the start of this month.

And reports in Italy claim he will now sign a deal worth close to £5.2million per year with Massimiliano Allegri’s side once he completes his medical.

The annual salary Di Maria will reportedly get is expected to be linked to appearances and ‘objectives’ which will act as bonuses.

Di Maria had also attracted interest from Barcelona and his former side Benfica, but La Gazzetta dello Sport, per Sport, previously reported Di Maria ‘grew tired’ of waiting for the Catalan giants.

The 122-cap Argentina international scored 92 goals to go with 118 assists in 294 appearances for PSG.

Last season, he played in 30 matches in all competitions for the Ligue 1 giants, scoring four goals.

Di Maria began his career in his home country with Rosario Central, before moving to Portuguese outfit Benfica in 2007.

The winger then signed for Real Madrid before an ill-fated spell with Manchester United preceded a 2015 switch to PSG.
