With just a medical standing in his way to complete the switch to Real Madrid, Angel Di Maria has officially been announced a member of Los Blancos where he will have the opportunity to play alongside some of the greatest Soccer players in the world.
Under head-coach, Jose Mourinho, Angel Di Maria will in fact become a much better player in the years to come. Although the deal was already stated to be completed earlier in the month, Real Madrid waited until the player returned from his World Cup duties to complete the deal. The deal is reported to be for 25 million euros and will be with Los Blancos for 6 years.
The medical chief of Real Madrid went on to say the following after Di Maria went on to pass the medical:
“The player is in perfect condition to make himself available to Jose Mourinho. He is a very lean and complete player. We proceeded, as always, to carry out the medical according to protocol. We performed all kinds of studies including x-rays, a bone density exam, a cardiorespiratory exam and a complete blood analysis. The results show that he is in perfect health and readily available for the coach. Every exam came back normal, which is a great sign. He now needs some time to rest having played in the World Cup and at a later date he will join the team for pre-season training.”
With a star studded team already with players like Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and fellow teammate Gonzalo Higuain, Di Maria will be adding even more offensive spark to Madrid.
Jose Mourinho will be hoping to bring in players that will see Madrid reclaim the title from Barcelona and also go a long way if not all the way in the UEFA Champions League. Although Mourinho was able to do this for Inter Milan as he went on to win a treble last season with Inter, even though he has more stars in Madrid, he has to figure out the perfect combination of players that can develop chemistry, something that definitely lacked last season.
Think Mourinho will reclaim the league title and possible win the Champions League as well? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
