Di Maria said, “I always dreamed of playing with him on a team. Every time we go to the national team, it’s too little for me. I always had the illusion of playing with him, of having him on my team every day.
“At the time, I had chances to go to Barcelona and it was not possible. It looks like there is another chance, but his contract ends there. I don’t know what could happen, but I would love it and be very happy.
“I had the chance to play with Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Mbappé. To play with Leo … I could take it easy. My wife said to me: ‘If Leo comes, we’ll stay and you can barbecue him’.”
