Angel Di Maria: Real Madrid’s loss is PSG’s gain, No player assisted more goal than Di Maria in LA LIGA last season (17).

After buying James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos, it seems that Carlo Ancelloti is looking to further strengthen his squad as the Italian is looking at AS Monaco’s Falcao to be their next bumper signing. But as they say, you have to spend money to make it. The Spanish giants are looking to offload some of their players. Khedira, and Di Maria are out of the club to neutralize FIFA Financial Play Rule.

But in order to make way for Columbian Striker, it seems Angel Di Maria will be sacrificed. AS Monaco are demanding a huge money for Falcao so Real Madrid are looking to sell Di Maria in a fee greater than £60M. French Side Paris Saints Germain are currently in pole position to sign the Argentine. But selling Di Maria could backfire as far as Real Madrid is concerned.

No player assisted more goals than Di Maria in LA LIGA last season (17).

Angel Di Maria was an integral part of Real’s squad last season. Considering his work rate and agility, there are not many players who can provide such things.  He was the heartbeat of Real Madrid. Playing with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale is not easy for any player.

Since the departure of Mesut Ozil, Di Maria has gone a level up in his game playing on the German’s position.

But Angel Di Maria is one other thing. He was the catalyst in most of the goals scored by Real Madrid last season. He might not be the so dangerous in front of goal but seems so capable in making goals. Having scored just 4 goals in La Liga last season, he performance was quite opposite in other parts of the game.

Di Maria assisted 17 goals last season, 4 more than any player in La Liga. The 26 year old Argentine is the top assist maker in Europe top 5 leagues last season as well. His key passing and brilliant final ball makes life so much difficult for opposing defenders. So maybe Ronaldo and Bale were laying in goals galore last season but it was Di Maria who played such a key role in their goals.

Di Maria created 90 chances last season more than any other player in Europe’s top 5 leagues.

Di Maria’s heroics also helped his team winning UEFA Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo was without a doubt their key man throughout the campaign with 17 goals but Di Maria was the joint assist maker in that competition with 5 assists. His most important contribution came in the final match when his short, saved by Courtois was turned into goal by Gareth Bale. Afterwards, he was presented the man of the match award for his tireless work throughout 120 minutes.

No doubt it will be a great business by the French side however the Spanish giants also knew how not to rest on laurels. Having playmakers like Isco, Bale and now James Rodriguez in their side and with another Colombian in Falcao seemingly coming in, Real Madrid are on the odds to cope with the departure of the Argentine.
