Angel Di Maria has admitted for the first time that he was 'close' to moving to Barcelona this summer. The Argentinian forward was deemed surplus to requirements at Paris-Saint Germain after the arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar and the Nou Camp club were understood to be one of those after him.

"I was close and at the same time very far from reaching a deal with Barca," Di Maria told ESPN. "I never lost hope over the chance. I was calm about it but it never happened. For sure, life takes many twists and turns and one never knows what the future might hold."
