Di Maria Sets Sights On Winning Europa League Trophy With Juventus

World Cup winner Angel Di Maria has said his target is to win the Europa League trophy this season with Juventus.

Despite winning major silverware throughout his career, the former Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain attacker doesn't have the Europa League in his trophy cabinet.

But there is a chance that he could win it should Juventus edge past Sevilla in the semi-finals of competition.

The Bianconeri will take on Sevilla in the semi-final first leg on Thursday, May 11 at the Allianz Arena before travelling to the home of the six-time champions in Spain for the reverse fixture.

Speaking ahead of the game tomorrow, Di Maria said (via Sky Italia): “I’ve only played in the Europa League with Benfica. I’m missing a trophy, and I’m focused on this.

“For me, all the trophies are important. 

"At the beginning of the season, it was tough because of the injuries. 

"I couldn’t give 100%. Now we have to win. We want a final for the fans too.”

Di Maria also confirmed he is in talks with the club over a contract extension. 

Though his deal expires this summer, his agent is in advanced talks to seal a one-year contract, with the player willing to take a pay cut to continue his journey in Turin.
