Juventus 'launch second Angel Di Maria transfer offer' in bid to beat Barcelona to free agent after PSG exit | The Sun

JUVENTUS have put a second bid to try and sign free agent Di Maria despite star looking likely to join Barcelona.

Juventus were looking likely to miss out on the Argentine after their first offer, with Barcelona being Di Maria's favoured option despite frustration from former club Real Madrid.

Sky Sports Calcio are claiming that Juventus are going to bid a second offer to sign the free agent Di Maria.

In their first attempt, Juventus offered a two-year contact when Di Maria, 34, only wanted a one-year contract.

They have now reportedly offered the Argentine a one-year contact with the option of another year extension.

Juventus are still confident in signing Di Maria but are looking at other wingers, such as Domenico Berardi, Nicolo Zaniolo and Filip Kostic if the deal does not happen.

But, despite this offer from Juventus, Di Maria still looks more likely to join Barcelona which would mean a controversial return to Spain.

Di Maria spent five years with Barcelona's bitter rivals Real Madrid before his move to PSG.

A move to Barcelona would be met with horror by Madrid fans who hate stars who play for their El Clasico rivals.

This makes a move to Juventus more attractive as it will not cause outrage from his former fans.
