Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly engaged in discussions with AS Roma regarding the potential departure of Leandro Paredes. According to FootMercato, the French champions are looking to offload players from their renowned “loft,” which has recently seen the exclusion of Neymar Jr and Marco Verratti from the squad for the Ligue 1 opener, alongside the presence of Kylian Mbappé and Leandro Paredes.
According to our sources, Paredes, who previously had a loan spell at Juventus, has been presented with an opportunity to make a move to Italy once again. While Galatasaray had also shown interest, it is now understood that PSG is in negotiations with AS Roma for the transfer of the Argentine international, who boasts an impressive record of 54 appearances and 5 goals for his country. Paredes was also part of the Argentine squad that clinched the 2022 World Cup title.
Reportedly, PSG is now demanding a fee of 5 million euros to release Paredes from his remaining contract year. This potential arrival could potentially expedite the departure of Nemanja Matic, who is rumored to be heading to Stade Rennais.
The negotiations between PSG and AS Roma for Paredes’ transfer highlight the club’s determination to reshape their squad and create space for new signings. With the new season underway, PSG’s strategic moves in the transfer market will undoubtedly be closely monitored by fans and pundits alike.
The departure of Paredes, if finalized, would not only mark a significant change for the player but also have implications for the respective clubs involved. AS Roma would be acquiring a talented midfielder with international experience, while PSG would continue their squad rebuilding process.
As the negotiations progress, it remains to be seen whether Paredes will indeed make his way to AS Roma. However, it is clear that PSG is actively seeking solutions to reduce their squad size and create financial flexibility for further transfers.
