Star winger Angel Di Maria will join Juventus on a free transfer

Star winger Angel Di Maria’s European tour will continue as he heads to Italian club Juventus on a one year deal. Di Maria had previously spent seven years playing for PSG. Prior to PSG, he was with Manchester United who he had joined from Real Madrid for a record transfer fee. He is 34 years old, hence the one year deal, but Di Maria has proven to be an impact player time and time again and he will have a big role with Juventus.

Last year, at PSG, Di Maria played 31 games and ended with five goals and nine assists. This level is far from his peak but he is still a reliable winger who has some magic left in his boots. Juventus is rebuilding their roster and have lost a lot of experience in key positions. Di Maria will be a steady presence as he has truly seen it all.

Throughout his soccer career, Di Maria has played and won with the top teams all across Europe. Except for his one year with Manchester United, he has enjoyed success everywhere and he will expect to do the same with Juventus. He and Paul Pogba will both join Juventus’ starting eleven as veterans who can be reliable amongst the young Juventus team.

Juventus won nine straight Serie A titles before missing out on the last two. They have been in contention for both of them but injuries have hurt them. Due to their shortcomings in recent seasons, Juventus came into this season hoping to re-tool their squad and it seems like they are doing just that. Di Maria may be aging, but he is still a valuable asset for this Juventus squad.

Right now, Juventus is the favorite to win the league at +175 and that is a good bet with the top betting sites. They have the history and now they have a stacked roster that can withstand some injuries. They have built depth in key positions and their mix of experience and young talent is the best in the league. Sure, AC Milan and Inter Milan will not make it easy, but Juventus at their best is a class above.

And it looks like Juventus will be at their best. They have traditionally dominated this league and they should return to that in this upcoming season. Simply, Juventus have too much talent and money to fail. Barring an epic injury situation like they had last year, Juventus should win the Serie A and Di Maria should be a key figure in their pursuit of Serie A title number 31.
