Barcelona inquire about €60m offer for Angel Di Maria, Real Madrid reject approach [SPORT]
Catalan tabloid SPORT have a mad story in their paper on Friday claiming a new suitor in the race for Angel Di Maria.
On Thursday coach Carlo Ancelotti publicly revealed that Di Maria has asked for a transfer before the window closes at the end of the month, and whilst the likes of Manchester United and PSG have been touted as the main bidders for the Argentine, apparently Barcelona are now interested too.
According to SPORT, Barca were considering a €60m offer for the Real Madrid man, however their initial approach to discuss the deal with Los Blancos was rejected out of hand.
If true it would be an interesting decision by Real, as the €60m offer feels like the highest bid which Florentino Perez’s club is likely to receive for the South American.
Moreover, the story seems to fuel belief that Barcelona, now facing a 12 months ban on signing players in 2015, could be about to spend big before August 31st in a final fling to boost their squad.
