Ángel Di María wants to stay at PSG, end career at Rosario and says it’s “a dream” to play with Lionel Messi

In speaking with TNT Sports Argentina, reiterating his thoughts from a recent RMC interview, PSG forward Ángel Di María has expressed his desire to extend his Paris contract beyond the end of the season: “I want to stay because I’m very happy here, and so are my family. The children are very happy at school. I would like to leave through the front door.”

The 33-year-old also stated, if he was to leave Paris he would return to Argentina. “If I leave it would be to go back to Argentinian football… My wish is to end my career at Rosario Central but not in ‘pre-retirement’. I want to be in good shape and be able to give my best.”

Di María also admitted that he had once been close to leaving PSG for Barcelona: “I was very close to going to Barcelona, but if I went there it would only be to play with [Messi]. When I heard he was coming here I was happy, it was the best thing that ever happened to me – playing with him was a dream of mine. This kid is crazy, it’s crazy, seven Ballon d’Or, it’s crazy!”
