Juventus have confirmed the signing of Angel Di Maria on a free transfer following his departure from PSG. The Argentina international left the French champions following the expiry of his contract in the summer. Di Maria racked up 295 appearances for PSG during his seven years at the club. The forward also chipped in with 92 goals across all competitions. While in Paris, the 34-year-old claimed five league titles, 13 domestic cups and also reached the 2019/20 Champions League final – one which ended in defeat against Bayern Munich.
Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has acknowledged that the club have discussed the prospect of re-signing Paul Pogba from Manchester United. The France international parted ways with the Bianconeri to re-join the Red Devils during the summer of 2016 but he has since endured a mixed run where he has come for plenty of criticism.
Amidst this, there has already been the talk of him pursuing a fresh challenge away from Old Trafford and when asked about the prospect of Juventus re-signing him, Paratici told TMW: “Is the return of Pogba possible? We have already discussed this many times. He’s a great player we’ve had before and are fond of, but now he plays for Manchester United. We are exploring the market, the president and Pavel Nedved, with the help of the coach (Massimiliano) Allegri. To improve the team we are always careful. We still have great players and we enjoy them. It will not be easy to always have so many strong ones.”
Former Real Madrid player Pepe was interested to play in the Premier League and there were some media reports that the player might be coming to Wolves. Indeed Wolves who were just promoted to the Premier League was looking to strengthen the team and was looking to Pepe as a player that can provide some steel at the back.
Pepe is renowned for his hard tackling style that can get over the line sometimes which has resulted in him getting more than 150 cards in his career.
