Angel Di Maria has confirmed his exit from Juventus after just one year at the Serie A club.

Di Maria joined as free agent last summer, signing a one-year deal after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.

But the 35-year-old will again be without a club at the start of the transfer window after confirming his departure from Juventus on social media.

“This is the end of a difficult and complicated period,” Di Maria wrote. “I leave with the peace of mind that I gave everything I had to help the club continue to win titles, but it wasn’t possible.

“I leave with the bitter taste of not having achieved it but with the happiness of taking with me many friends from the wonderful dressing room I was part of. Thanks to all my team-mates for the affection they gave me from the first day, I always felt at home.

“A big greeting to all the Juventinos for the affection they show me every day. A big hug, I carry you in my heart.”

Di Maria made an immediate impact at Juventus, with a goal and assist on debut for the Turin side. The World Cup winner, however, sustained an injury and that match and was blighted by fitness issues until the mid-season break.

Amid Juventus’ own struggles under Massimiliano Allegri, Di Maria struggled to make a consistent impact at the club and finished the season with eight goals and seven assists in 40 appearances.

Juventus — having been hit with a 10-point deduction — finished seventh in Serie A and qualified for the Europa Conference League next season.
