Two Paris Saint-Germain superstars are set to reunite by 2021 at a mutual destination despite being linked to other clubs.
French side Paris Saint Germain or more popularly known as PSG has dominated the Ligue-1 in recent years, winning 7 titles in the past 8 years. The team has been home to some legendary players with the likes of David Beckham and Ronaldinho, but if we talk of recent years 4 names that stand out the most are Zlatan Ibrahimovich, Angel Di Maria, Edinson Cavani, and Thiago Silva.
This quad of the Swede, Argentine, Uruguayan, and the Brazilian has been instrumental for the success in the club. Zlatan may have already left the club long before and Cavani and Thiago Silva will not be continuing with Les Parisiens next season, but what comes as a surprise is that Di Maria might be accompanying them in leaving the French capital.
The former Real Madrid winger has been a huge asset for PSG, causing nightmares for defenses and causing a ruckus with his exceptional left foot and technical abilities. However, with already one of the best if not the best-attacking trios with Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Jr, and Mauro Icardi upfront it seems like Di Maria would have immense competition.
Di Maria has turned 32 this year and will be 33 the next year when his contract ends in 2021, and as has happened with Edinson Cavani with his contract expiring this year and him turning 33, it is very unlikely that a new contract will be handed to the Argentine and his departure seems almost certain next season if not now.
The club targeting the PSG winger is Portuguese side Benfica, who are also looking to add the former Napoli number 7 to their side for next season as he is currently a free agent. The Eagles are looking to dominate the Portuguese league and the addition of these big reinforcements is sure to help their cause. The board of the club is currently in talks with the Uruguayan striker and will be hoping to make the return of Di Maria to the club, which was his former home for three seasons.
