Angel Di Maria wants Lionel Messi to make a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The 32-year old Argentine winger dreams of playing alongside countryman Lionel Messi at club level.
Lionel Messi has entered the final six months of his contract with Barcelona and PSG are among those willing to sign the six-time Ballon d’Or winner in the summer.
Di Maria is enjoying his sixth season with the French giants and a seventh could see him line up against Lionel Messi.
Di Maria told TyC Sports: “I always had the wish of playing with him in the same team.
“Whenever we got with the national team, it always felt too short. I always had that hope, to play with him every day. I had in the past the possibility to join Barcelona but it wasn’t to be. Now it seems there may be a chance although my contract ends soon.
My wife even told me that ‘if Leo does come, we at least stay and you can make him an asado [barbecue].’ With that, I say it all. I don’t know what will happen but I would love to, and it would make me very happy. I’ve had the possibility of playing with Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, [Kylian] Mbappe.
“To play with Leo [Messi] … I could then happily retire. I couldn’t ask anything more from football.”
