PARIS (AP) — Angel Di Maria has signed a new two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain, tying him to the French champion until 2021.
The 30-year-old Argentina winger has made a strong start to the season, scoring seven goals in 14 games overall for the runaway league leader.
Last week he rescued PSG with an injury-time equalizer in a 2-2 home draw with Napoli in the Champions League . He then set up Kylian Mbappe’s goal with a threaded pass behind the defense in a 2-0 win away to Marseille on Sunday.
Di Maria scored 21 goals last season but fell out of favor at times with PSG’s former manager Unai Emery, who benched him for a Champions League last-16 match at Real Madrid in February.
The former Real Madrid star is now a key player in new coach Thomas Tuchel’s side, which has won its first 11 league games.
