Angel Di Maria has committed his future to Paris Saint-Germain by signing a one-year extension to his contract.
The Argentina international’s previous commitment was due to expire in the summer, meaning he could have departed the French capital on a free transfer.
However, club and player have reached agreement on a deal to the summer of 2022, with an option in place to extend by a further 12 months.

“I am very happy to be able to renew one more year with PSG, and plus one more if we both agree,” Di Maria told the club’s official website. “I always said I was very happy in Paris.
“My wish and my desire to continue here was because I feel very happy and because my family is very happy too.
“I think that if I renewed my contract it is because the club is happy with me.
“Now I am playing with Ney (Neymar), with Kylian [Mbappe], players who are making history at the club and want to continue to make history.”
The former Real Madrid man joined PSG from Manchester United in 2015, and has racked up some excellent numbers in his six years at the club.
Di Maria has scored 87 goals and crafted 99 assists in his 248 appearances for PSG - and has won a host of trophies, with four Ligue 1 titles the highlights.

Safet Susic is in Di Maria’s sights, as he tops the list of PSG’s all-time assist makers with 103. At the rate he crafts goals, the 33-year-old should move ahead before the season is out.
It is a record he is aware of and keen to make his own.
“I’ve been anxious in the last games to reach 100 assists," he said. "It is something very important to me and to then reach 103 and surpassing and reaching 104.
“It would be something important because it would remain in the history of the club and would be marked forever until someone is able to pass me."
Champions League glory is the one thing missing from Di Maria’s haul at PSG, but they remain in the hunt after overcoming Barcelona to reach the quarter finals.
