There are so many lies about my Juventus future, says Di Maria


Angel Di Maria hasn't had the start to life at Juventus that he might have been expecting and rumours have been circulating that he wants to leave in January. Although, in a message posted to his Instagram account, he has claimed that those reports are nothing but lies.

He wrote: "I don't know who invented the rumours that I am leaving in January, my statements that you have read and heard where I say that I am going to retire at Rosario Central (the club I left from) are recent, but they are statements I have been making since the day I first arrived to play here in Europe in 2007. This does not mean that I want to leave TODAY, nor will I leave in January, please stop making up news, I am very happy at this great club."
