Angel Di Maria to Juventus

All that was missing now was the official announcement, and Friday night that came as well: Angel Di Maria is a Juventus player.

“He is a player who almost doesn’t need to be described,” reads the Bianconeri’s official website. “An attacking superstar, capable of scoring outstanding goals, but also of moving an entire department around, often sending his teammates on goal. He is the player who has taken part in more goals than anyone else in the Champions League in recent years, 54 (22 goals and 32 assists). A champion with a crazy palmarès, won with the jerseys of Benfica first, Real Madrid later, PSG in recent seasons. A symbol of the Argentine national team, with which he won an Olympic gold medal in Beijing in 2008 and a Copa America in 2021. He is one of the players to have dished out the most assists (131) in the five European championships since the beginning of last decade, behind only Lionel Messi (174) and Thomas Müller (149). A champion who makes the ball sing, who gets drunk with his lightning-fast dribbles, who elevates the left-hander to the level of pure poetry, who enchants whenever he lights up the game with a blaze of his own. He is someone who puts it all in: talent, running, sweat, commitment, class, charisma. And, of course, heart, as he shows the world every time he exults. He is Angel Di Maria. And he is an HCL player. Bienvenido, Fideo!”
