Madrid, Nov 10: Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Angel Di Maria has revealed that he almost joined Spanish football giant FC Barcelo in the summer transfer window.
“I was close to joining Barcelo in the summer and yet far away at the same time,” the Argentine intertiol was quoted saying by Spanish web site Marca on Thursday. “It is hard to complete moves to these clubs. I never lost hope of it going through but in the end it didn’t happen,” Di Maria added. The 29-year-old also said his past experience with Barcelo’s rival club Real Madrid would not have stopped him from joining the side.
“My Madrid past wouldn’t have been an issue as I’m not a Madrid fan and I always point that out whenever I’m asked about it,” the former Real Madrid player said. IANS
