Angel Di Maria has told Paris Saint-Germain he wants to join Barcelona and requested they do not block any move, say reports in Spain.
Diario Sport cites a report in El Larguero stating the Argentine international wants to force through a move to the Camp Nou and has informed Unai Emery personally of his decision.
There is speculation that Barca could offer Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes along with a small sum of money to prise the winger from the Parisians.
Sport quote the Blaugrana’s sporting director Robert Fernandez in saying the club want ‘two more signings’ and say the targeted players are Philippe Coutinho and the former Real Madrid man.
Di Maria left the Bernabeu for an ill-fated move to Manchester United in 2014 before moving to the Parc des Princes the following year and he has netted 16 Ligue 1 goals in 61 appearances.
