Angel Di Maria may reunite with Carlo Ancelotti at Napoli
Carlo Ancelotti has only replaced Maurizio Sarri as Napoli coach yesterday, but it seems he has already started his job. Naples club is active in the transfer market and Angel Di Maria is the first player linked with the club. Di Maria played under Ancelotti at Real Madrid from 2013 to 2015, and it seems the Argentine may reunite with him at Napoli.
Football Italia reports from transfer specialists Agenti Anonimi columns, “Di Maria and his agent were in Milan today for a meeting with Napoli director of Sport Cristiano Giuntoli.”

Di Maria’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires next summer and he was also not happy with his wages at the club. He wanted a better salary from the Parisians and that can be fulfilled at Napoli if he comes cheap in the transfer market.
Fideo holds an Italian passport because of his Italian ancestry. And finally, he’ll be able to use it if he moves to Napoli from PSG. He has had a great season with PSG this season. He has 21 goals and 15 assists to his name this season in all competition and he may be Argentina’s trump card in FIFA World Cup Russia 2018.
It will be a good signing for Napoli, but they’ll have to say goodbye to another former Real Madrid player Jose Callejon. Di Maria is lethal from the right flank and he is expected to replace Callejon at that front. However, he can play in any midfield role. He is good in attack from left flank as well.
Jose Callejon is expected to move to AC Milan or he may follow his former boss Maurizio Sarri. Callejon has worked well in Sarri’s tactical system and former Napoli coach may ask him to join wherever he goes.
