Juventus man could be forced to give up his shirt number for Di Maria

July 3, 2022 - 9:41 am

Juventus is close to completing the transfer of Angel di Maria after they beat competition from others to add him to their squad.

The Argentinian remains one of the world’s best attackers and has just left PSG after seven years.

He is now set to move to the Allianz Stadium, but Juve has already confirmed most of its top shirt numbers.

They gave the number 7 to Federico Chiesa, a number some fans had expected would be handed over to Di Maria.

It seems he would now force another player at the club to hand over his shirt number to him.

Tuttomercatoweb reports that the former Manchester United man might collect the number 11 from Juan Cuadrado.

The Colombian has been a key member of the Bianconeri team, and he has just triggered a one-year extension on his deal.

It would be interesting to see which number he takes if he hands over 11 to the new signing.

Juve FC Says

Di Maria is a top player, but Cuadrado has also been great for us and has chosen to stay on different occasions when he could have left the club.

The Bianconeri should allow him to keep his shirt number unless he voluntarily agrees to give it up for Di Maria.

      I disagree with you on this. Caudrado has been good for Juve. Besides Di Maria will stay for just a season. So Caudrado should keep his shirt number except he voluntarily hand it over

      Leech? You are such an ignorant and ungrateful fan. He’s been one of our best and most consistent performers. What a tool!

    Agree with Dennis. Age is just a number, and Cuadrado prooves it. I gond him and Chiesa as pur best players last season. Just to mention his goal from the corner kick. He deserves Nedveds #11. Di Maria, pn the other hand is new and still has to proove his worth. It is a bit surprising that a good player like him left psg

    what i saw last season (many games) cuadrado was at least as good as any other player, and the most versatile on the squad. his tenure and quality should provide the respect of the choice to keep or give the number away.

    If others players of Juventus played like Cuadrado in terms of performance we would be the best club in Europe. Cuadrado is a Juventus legend. He is probably the player that at 33-34 years old gives the most in the Italian league.
