Madrid Press: Angel di Maria wants future sorted


With just two weeks to go until the World Cup there is plenty of focus in the press on international football and the preparations ahead of the tournament.

But, of course, it is less than a week since Real Madrid won La Decima, and the Madrid papers have plenty of news and coverage about the 10 time European Cup winners. And today we start with winger Angel di Maria, who makes the front page on Marca.

The Argentine midfielder, who scored 11 goals this season and picked up the man of the match award in the Champions League final, is unsure about where he’ll be playing football next season. He has been subject of interest from Benfica and Chelsea in previous summers, although Real this year seem unwilling to sell. Speaking to journalists, di Maria said he would like his future sorted out soon and that he will give 100% in whatever jersey it is he’ll wear next season.

The dates for various Supercups have been confirmed, and Real Madrid will have a busy time at the start of the next campaign. They will face Sevilla in the European Supercup on August 12th, while the two-legged Spanish Supercup takes place on August 20th and 27th – with La Liga beginning on August 24th. As Champions League winners, Real will also take part in the World Club Cup, which takes place between December 16th and 20th.
