Angel Di Maria claims he was offered a ‘CRаZY’ deal to play with Cristiano Ronaldo and company in Saudi Arabia this summer, but he declined.
According to Angel Di Maria, he turned down “crаzy” offers from Saudi Arabian clubs in favor of returning to Benfica.
Di Maria had his pick of clubs once his contract with Juventus expired, but he “chose with his heart” to rejoin Benfica, for whom he had previously played from 2007 to 2010.
After Cristiano Ronaldo’s January transfer to Al-Nassr, a number of high-profile players have decided to follow suit and spend the summer in Saudi Arabia.They contacted me from Saudi Arabia, Di Maria said on D Sports Radio. The money they’re offering is through the roof, but I went with my heart and decided to return to Benfica.
The winger’s return to Portugal has been fruitful thus far, as he scored on his debut for Benfica against Porto, helping the club to victory in the Supertaca Candido de Oliveira.After that, Di Maria scored in Benfica’s league loss to Boavista and played a key role in the team’s win over Estrela.
Di Maria transferred to Benfica from Rosario Central, where he helped the club win the league once and the cup twice.Di Maria then had a successful run with Real Madrid, when he won the Champions League.
After a disappointing time with Manchester United, Di Maria joined Paris Saint-Germain, where he went on to win five Ligue 1 championships.
As a member of Argentina’s national team, Di Maria has also tasted success on the international scene, winning the World Cup in 2018.
Thomas Muller makes complete U-turn on the Ronaldo vs Messi GOAT debate
Muller’s opinions on the Ronaldo vs. Messi argument were made obvious when he joined in by referencing his personal record against the two superstars.
Considering his ‘excellent statistics’ versus the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, he opted for the Portuguese at the moment. “I’m a Ronaldo fan,” he declared.
“My record against Messi is good, but not so great against Ronaldo.”In the Champions League, Muller has often been on the losing end while facing Ronaldo’s previous team, Real Madrid.
However, he has triumphed over Messi, most notably in an 8-2 victory over Messi’s former club Barcelona in the 2019–20 season.
However, the 33-year-old has altered his mind and now considers Messi the greatest of all time, praising his ‘elegance’ as the reason.
‘Who is the best of all time?’ he questioned. Messi is the greatest player of all time because he is both elegant and highly effective in terms of scoring goals and breаking records and winning championships.
According to the article, “Cristiano is also a strong candidate in two categories which are stats and titles, but Messi is simply more subtle and elegant.”After Messi led Argentina to World Cup victory in Qatar, the pendulum of the GOAT discussion shifted in his favor.
He was a major reason why Argentina triumphed over France to claim the trophy in its own country last year.
Since leaving PSG, Messi has helped Inter Miami win the Leagues Cup for the first time in the club’s history.
And he may be the key to another trophy for David Beckham’s squad when they face Houston Dynamo in the U.S. Open Cup final.
