- Top footballer Angel di Maria's current deal with PSG expires this summer
- The Parisians are hoping to sign Lionel Messi on a free transfer at the end of this season
- Di Maria's wife has now warned him to stay at Parc Des Princes at all cost if they refuse to give him a new deal
Manchester United flop Angel di Maria has been told to stay at Paris Saint Germain as a chef if they refuse to give him a new deal.
The Parisians have been linked with a move to sign Lionel Messi when his contract with Barcelona expires at the end of this campaign.
Although Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in the former Real Madrid winger, however, his wife doesn't seem like she is ready to leave the French capital just yet.
Di Maria's current deal with the Ligue 1 champion expires at the end of this campaign but Jorgelina Cardoso has now told her husband to stay at the club in any capacity he could. He was quoted by SunSport saying:
"My wife told me ‘if Leo comes, we stay and at the very least you can stay on as a cook.’ That tells you everything. […] It would be the best. I couldn’t ask for anything more in football."
When asked about a potential link-up with his international team-mate at club level, the former Red Devils star said:
"I always had the dream of playing with Messi in a club team.
"Every time we go to the Argentine national team, it seems very short. I always had the dream of playing with him, having him by my side every day.
"I had, at one time, chances to go to FC Barcelona, but it was not possible. It seems that there is another chance, but my contract is ending here.
"I don’t know what could happen, but I would love it, and I would be very happy. I had the chance to play with Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe. Playing with Leo… I could retire happily.
Di Maria has scored twice in 16 Ligue 1 appearances so far this season. He has started all five games since new boss Mauricio Pochettino arrived earlier this month.
Both Manchester City and Bayern Munich stars will be out of contract with their respective clubs at the end of the ongoing season. The 32-year-old Argentine is expected to leave the Etihad Stadium outfit after 10 years having stalled on extending his reign with the Premier League club.
Barca made attempts to land the Argentine in 2014 but later settled for ex-Liverpool star Luis Suarez but Aguero coming to Camp Nou is also being seen as a way to convince Lionel Messi to stay at the club.
