Former Manchester United star Angel Di Maria has revealed he almost joined Barcelona last summer.
The Paris Saint-Germain winger was linked with a move to the Spanish giants after Neymar had gone the other way.
Di Maria has now confirmed that he did in fact hold talks with Barca, but talks collapsed late on.
"My move to Barca was really close but ultimately it did not go through," Di Maria told TyC Sports.
"I have started the year on a really good level and I am very happy, that I am assisting goals is great because I prefer that to scoring."
