Ángel Di María is an Argentine professional football player who was born on February 14, 1988, in Rosario, Argentina. He began his career with Rosario Central in 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the most exciting young talents in Argentine football.
In 2007, Di María joined Benfica in Portugal, where he played for three seasons and won two Portuguese league titles. His performances for Benfica attracted the attention of top European clubs, and in 2010 he was signed by Real Madrid for a reported fee of €25 million.
Di María was a key player for Real Madrid during his four seasons with the club, winning several major trophies including the La Liga title and the UEFA Champions League. He was known for his lightning pace, exceptional dribbling ability, and his eye for a killer pass.
In 2014, Di María transferred to Manchester United in a British record fee of £59.7 million. However, his time at Old Trafford was somewhat of a disappointment, as he struggled to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League and failed to replicate the form he had shown in Spain.
After just one season with Manchester United, Di María joined Paris Saint-Germain for a reported fee of €63 million. He has since become a key player for the French club, helping them to win multiple domestic trophies and reaching the final of the UEFA Champions League in 2020.
Di María has also been a regular member of the Argentine national team since 2008, playing in three Copa America tournaments and three World Cups. He was part of the team that reached the final of the 2014 World Cup, where Argentina lost to Germany in extra time.
Throughout his career, Di María has been praised for his technical ability, his work rate, and his determination to win. He is widely regarded as one of the best attacking midfielders in the world and has won numerous individual awards for his performances on the pitch.
