Angel Di Maria has won almost everything there is to win in both club and international football.

At the club level, he has won the league and cup in three different countries, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup, amongst other prestigious trophies.

In the Argentine colours, he has won an Olympic gold, a Copa America, and finished second at the FIFA World Cup.

Yet, Di Maria is far from done with professional football. At the ripe age of 34, the player is determined to continue his career in Europe, according to a report from Gaston Edul.

Several top clubs are said to be interested in signing the winger, including Atletico Madrid. They are among the four clubs eyeing the Argentine, the others being Barcelona, Benfica, and Juventus.

Di Maria has started 16 league games for PSG this season, scoring three goals and providing five assists. He averages 2.1 key passes per game and has created 12 big chances.

Yesterday, he started against Angers in Ligue 1 and provided two assists with a whopping six key passes. He also created three big chances on the night.

His contract with Paris-Saint Germain only runs until June, after which he will be a free agent. At the moment, there is no proposal to renew his deal at Parc des Princes, but it would be foolish to rule out any future efforts from the French side.

Atletico Madrid have made their final move of the winter transfer window, completing the signing of Matt Doherty from Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer.

The Irish international has seen little to no minutes in the league this season, and had his contract mutually terminated by Tottenham before he made the switch to Atletico on deadline day.

This comes on the back of a three-way switch. Spurs signed Pedro Porro from Sporting Lisbon, who have reportedly replaced him with Hector Bellerin from Barcelona, while enabling Doherty’s switch to La Liga.

This is only Atletico’s second winter transfer for this window. They had signed Memphis Depay earlier this month from Barcelona on a €3 million 2.5-year deal.

That said, they have managed to offload Joao Felix to Chelsea, Mathus Cunha to Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Marcos Paulo to Sao Paolo. Atletico also managed to register Pablo Barrios to the first-team after his impressive displays in the first-half of the season.
