According to Spanish sports daily, AS, Di Maria is so determined to join his teammates, should they reach the World Cup final, that he has decided to undergo stem cell treatment, similar to that used by Diego Costa ahead of the Champions League final, in order to fight for football’s grandest prize.

The medical procedure is used to regenerate damaged cells using the patient’s own healthy cells, with the primary object being to reduce inflammation and repair the torn muscle tissue.

In addition to the treatment, Di Maria will also undergo the standard treatment for this injury; ice, kinesiology, electro pulse stimulation and some rehabilitation exercises in the swimming pool.
