In the summer of 2010 after scoring seven goals in 76 league appearances, Di Maria was signed by Madrid from Benfica for €25 million plus €11 million in incentives on a five-year contract. He quickly became an integral part of the team and helped Los Blancos win the Copa del Rey in 2010-10 and La Liga in 2011-12.
He moved to Manchester United in 2014 for £59.7 million which was the highest transfer fee paid by an English club at the time, although he never reached the heights expected, before moving to Paris Saint Germain in 2015 in a deal worth around £44 million.
Di Maria made his international debut for Argentina in 2008 and played for them at the 2014 World Cup finals when they finished runners-up. He won the FIFA World Youth Championship in 2007 and the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
