Messi is likely to leave Barça in the summer and Paris Saint-Germain will try hard to sign him.
The former Real Madrid winger, who is a teammate ofLionel Messi
in the Argentine national team, had been close to teaming up with Messi in the club level in the past. There have been reports of Di Maria being transferred to the Camp Nou , but the Argentine midfielder is currently in his sixth season in Paris.
Lionel Messi wanted to leave Barcelona last summer, but eventually stayed at the Nou Camp, but his departure at the end of the season seems certain. Now Di Maria has expressed hope that Messi will transfer to the French capital and that the two will team up together at the club level.
He told TYC Sport:
“I had the opportunity at one moment in my career to go to Barcelona but it was not done.
“We could say that there is another chance to be able to play with him but my contract is coming to an end and I do not know what will happen. But I would be very happy to play alongside him.
“I have already played with Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe. If I could play as well with Leo, I could happily retire after that!”
“My wife told me, 'if Leo comes, we will at least stay and you will make him a barbecue’.
“It would be the best. I could not ask for anything more in football.”
