- PSG set to play Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night
- Angel Di Maria returns to Spain to play against his former side in the last-16 tie
- The winger says he holds no special feeling for Madrid after leaving in 2014
Angel Di Maria says he would have no problem joining Barcelona, despite having previously played for fierce rivals Real Madrid.
The Argentina international spent four years with Madrid from 2010 – the team his Paris Saint-Germain side face in the Champions League last-16 – winning La Liga, the Copa del Rey twice and the Champions League.

Ahead of the match, Di Maria said that his relationship with Madrid ‘is over’
But asked if his Madrid past would ever stop him from returning to Spain with Barcelona, Di Maria gave a firm response.
‘My relationship with Madrid is finished because my cycle there ended,’ he told So Foot.
‘Frankly, I wouldn’t have a problem to play at Barca, to the contrary.
‘The only club I couldn’t play for is Newell’s Old Boys because I am a fan of Rosario Central.’
