Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel di Maria believes his former Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo ‘would be dying to’ join him in the French capital. ‘But luckily Messi has arrived…’
The Juventus striker was linked with a move to the Ligue 1 giants this summer, but PSG decided to sign Lionel Messi as a free agent when his deal with Barcelona expired.
Messi joined Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum and Gigio Donnarumma, who have all arrived in Paris this summer.
The Argentine is happy that his national teammate will play at the Parc des Princes and claims Ronaldo would have loved to play with the other superstars in France.
“Cristiano Ronaldo would be dying to be here,” Di Maria told TYC Sport. “The quality and quantity of players at PSG is something unique.
“It doesn’t happen often in clubs and the greats always want to be with the best. Cristiano would certainly like to be here, but they signed Messi and luckily, it’s better this way.
“Messi is of another category. You throw a stone at him and he stops it, he does it as if it was nothing. He thinks before the others.
“I have never seen anything like it. I have played with Cristiano, Neymar, [Kylian] Mbappé, [Wayne] Rooney, [Robin] van Persie, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, [Karim] Benzema, [Gareth] Bale and honestly, I have never seen anything like it.
“Leo is something unique. For me, it’s very easy to play with him. If you run, he gives you the ball at your feet. There are no excuses. I have a very good relationship with him, even off the pitch.
“I think Messi will feel better here than in Catalonia. With the welcome he has had in Paris, I think he already understands what he represents.”
