Ligue 1: PSG tie Angel Di Maria down until 2022
Angel Di Maria would remain a Paris Saint Germain player until 2022 after extending his contract with the French champions by another season.
Di Maria, 33, has featured 248 times for the French outfit and has managed to score 87 goals since joining from Manchester United in 2015.
“Paris Saint-Germain is delighted to announce that Angel Di Maria has signed a one-year contract extension, with an option of a second year,” PSG said in a statement.
Also, he is on course to break Safet Susic’s assist record.
Susic played for PSG from 1982-91 and he is currently the only PSG player to have managed more assists for the club than Di Maria (103).
“I hope to beat that record of Safet Susic because I would stay in the record books of the club,” Di Maria said in a club statement.
Di Maria has won 16 trophies with the club including four league titles in 2016, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
He was also a second-half substitute in PSG’s second leg round of 16 tie against Barcelona on Wednesday with the French giant progressing to the quarter-finals of the Champions League at the expense of Barcelona.
The Ligue 1 club survived a first-half onslaught from Barcelona, where Lionel Messi scored but missed a penalty, to draw 1-1 and go through 5-2 on aggregate.
PSG also currently occupies the second position in Ligue 1, two points behind leaders Lille.
