Angel Di Maria is an Argentina international football player who currently features for Paris Saint Germain. He plays as a winger and is rated as one of the best in his position in the world.

Career

Di Maria developed at the youth academy of Argentine giants Rosario Central and made his first-team debut for them in 2005. After two years he moved to Europe to play for Portuguese giants Benfica.

Di Maria quickly established himself as a key player for the Lisbon club and started earning a name for him in and around Europe. He won the Portuguese league with Benfica in 2009-10 and the League Cup in 2008-09 and 2009-10.

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 has been with PSG ever since, winning four Ligue 1 titles and helping the side reach the final of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in 2019-20.

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.
