Barcelona missed out …

Angel Di Maria was one of Barcelona’s summer transfer targets and reports in France suggest that they were very close to signing the Argentine from Paris Saint-Germain.

It was only a disagreement over the transfer fee that saw the player stay at the Parc des Princes, despite his requests to the club’s hierarchy to allow him to leave.

According to L’Equipe, the amount the Catalan club offered for the 29-year-old was 45 million euros, plus 5m euros in add-ons.

Yet the Ligue 1 side were looking for 60m euros, an amount that Barcelona were not prepared to pay.
