Ligue 1: PSG megastar 'holds talks' with Barcelona over controversial transfer

Paris Saint-Germain's Argentine winger Angel Di Maria's next proposed career move may make him the world's most hated professional. 

According to​ Le 10 Sport, the 29-year-old's representatives have met with Barcelona about a potential move to the Camp Nou in the summer.

For context, Di Maria was a Real Madrid player between the years of 2010 and 2014 - the arch rivals of Barcelona in La Liga. 

The tricky Argentine is rumoured to be keen to link-up with his international team-mate Lionel Messi at the Catalan club. The proposed move is sure to resound badly amongst both Real Madrid fans, and Manchester United fans alike.

United's expectant supporters labelled Di Maria 'snakey' due to his lack of commitment to the club during his one-season spell at Old Trafford after becoming United's most expensive ever signing under Louis van Gaal.

This was after a break-in occurred at his family home of course. On top of that, inconsistencies in the expert winger's performances and the prospect of no Champions League football saw him say goodbye to the Red Devils in premature fashion. 


Los Blancos fans will certainly harbour more animosity towards their former hero If he is to sign for such a fierce rival in Barcelona in the summer. However, if the former 'Galactico' was unable to start at a blistering pace for Barca, there's a strong chance the Barcelona fans could also start turning on him as well.

Di Maria wouldn't be the only player to have played at the Santiago Bernabeu and the Camp Nou within their playing careers, however - 

Gheorghe Hagi, Samuel Eto'o and current Barcelona manager Luis Enrique have all turned out for Real's bitter enemy at some stage in the past. 

That still won't take the edge away from Di Maria, and if the rumour is to become reality, there'll certainly be some fireworks to go with it.
