Angel Di Maria’s wife joked that he would have to stay at Paris Saint-Germain as a COOK in order to play with Lionel Messi if the Barcelona superstar joins the club.
Di Maria’s contract expires this summer and a new deal has yet to be offered to him, with reports earlier this week suggesting a host of clubs are monitoring his situation.
Messi has been linked with a move to PSG with his contract also ending this summer, and Di Maria has admitted his wife could force him to go to great lengths to play for the Barcelona superstar.
As quoted by The Sun, Di Maria said: “I had the chance to play with Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Kylian Mbappé. By playing with Leo, I could retire happily. My wife said to me, “If Leo comes, we stay and at least you can stay a cook.”
“That tells you everything. It would be the best. I couldn’t ask for anything more in football.
Di Maria plays with Messi for Argentina but always dreamed of playing with him at club level.
“I have always dreamed of playing with Messi in a club team. Every time we go to the Argentina national team it seems very short. I always dreamed of playing with him, of having him by my side every day, ”he says.
“I had, at one point, chances to go to FC Barcelona, but it was not possible. It looks like there is another chance, but my contract ends here. I don’t know what could happen, but I would love it and be very happy.
This is not the first time that Di Maria’s wife has made the headlines.
Jorgelina Cardoso once revealed that she begged her husband not to sign for Manchester United and absolutely hated living in the town of ‘s ** thole’ – a comment that unsurprisingly didn’t not much appreciated.
Di Maria’s move to Old Trafford only lasted a year after signing from Real Madrid for a British record £ 59.7million.
