Real Madrid Rumors: Angel Di Maria Headed To Juventus After Latest Incident?

Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

Things aren’t very quiet for Angel Di Maria after what happened in Real Madrid’s last match against Celta De Vigo.

The speedy winger has been heavily criticized due to his subpar performances this season, and the fans aren’t very pleased with what he has shown this campaign. Sadly for the Argentina international, he made a bad gesture to the fans in response to the criticism, and now Los Merengues are opening a file against him and it appears that he won’t be part of the squad much longer.

While it’s no secret that Carlo Ancelotti still trusts him enough to make him a regular fixture in the lineup, it’s unclear how this latest incident will impact in his future. The management is clearly not pleased with his attitude, and he could be offloaded as soon as this month.

One team that is reportedly looking at the situation closely is Juventus. The current Serie A champions are in the market looking for a winger, and Di Maria could fit perfectly in the team’s plans.

Juventus have defensive specialists to play in the flanks, and even though the Italian side is reportedly interested in Manchester United star Nani, Di Maria could also be a great option to add some much needed flair to the wings. No offer has been made yet, but Juventus could end up making a play for the former Benfica star to bring him to Italy during the current transfer window.

One thing is certain, and it seems like Di Maria won’t be playing much longer for Real Madrid. Based on how things have happened this year, it might be the best for all parties involved.
