Angel Di Maria could be heading to Juventus rather than Barcelona this summer after new talks with Juve.
The winger admitted Juventus are one of several clubs wanting him after he left PSG on a free transfer.
Fabrizio Romano reported last night that negotiations are at the “final details” stage. Unless Barça acts fast, the Argentinian will move to Italy.

According to reports, Di Maria preferred a move to Barcelona and waited to hear from the Catalan giants before deciding his next move.
However, it now appears the Argentina international is moving closer to Juve. Relevo report that Di Maria hasn’t given a final answer but the deal “is closer.”
The 34-year-old had emerged as an option for Barcelona this summer along with Raphinha, while Ousmane Dembele’s future remains unclear.
The Frenchman’s next move may become apparent soon as his contract expires in just a matter of days. If Dembele does depart on a free transfer the club are expected to try and sign a replacement, although Raphinha may be difficult due to his lofty price.
Looks like the 3 options for the Right Wing are not close to signing. Does Barça have more names on the table? Time will tell.
Ferran Torres might be an option for the write wing. Moreover, both Collado and Trincao should start the preseason qith the team. And Abde is also an option, although he’s better at the left wing. Is that enough?
Although he’s primarly a midfielder, Bernardo Silva can also playat the wing. But is that ènough?
It’s fair to say that Barça should look to strengthen the RW position, but it won’t be easy.
