Angel Di Maria’s representatives have confirmed they are about to seal the deal with Juventus.
The Argentina international had delayed for weeks after leaving Paris Saint Germain and becoming a free agent as he was also considering an offer from Barcelona of Spain.
But the playmaker accepted Juventus yesterday and negotiations are ongoing and in a positive way.
“We are talking about the final details and waiting for Juventus to give the OK on certain things,” Di Maria’s entourage was quoted as telling La Stampa newspaper.
He is expected to sign a one-year contract worth €7m per season plus bonuses, although there could also be an option for a second year.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the initial offer was €7m per season included add-ons, but agent Lisandro Pirosanto requested more.
The meeting with director Federico Cherubini was nonetheless positive and they are close to a deal.
