Ángel Di María has once more addressed media speculation regarding him. This time, the subject was his potential desire to quit Juventus.
Di María’s declaration that he would eventually desire to play for his youth team Rosario Central in a CONMEBOL interview last week is the cause. “Even if only for one year. While playing in Europe is every Argentine’s ambition, my goal is to one day return and don Rosario’s jersey. I’ll take the opportunity if I get it,” Di Maria said. From the time he was four years old until his 2007 departure to Europe, the winger was a member of the team.

I don’t know who started the rumours that I’m leaving in January,” he wrote in a post. Di María acknowledges that he has spoken publicly about leaving for Rosario Central, but he adds, “I have made those declarations since I came to play in Europe in 2007.”
The forward claims to enjoy Turin. “I don’t necessarily want to go now, or even in the winter. Stop making up stories; I’m thrilled to be a part of this fantastic club. Don’t trust what you read, Di María said.
