With the elimination of Juventus in the Champions League, a midfielder on loan with an option to buy could sign an unexpected return to PSG.
Mercato PSG: A deal close to overturning with Juventus
The arrival of the Campos-Galtier tandem has allowed Paris Saint-Germain to carry out a major facelift this summer. Exit doors have been found in many elements that do not fit into the game plans of Christophe Galtier, the new coach of PSG. Downgraded in the midfield following the signings of Vitinha, Fabian Ruiz or even Renato Sanches, Leandro Paredes returned to Italy. The Argentinian midfielder is on loan this season with an option to buy at Juventus in Turin. At the Bianconeri, he found his compatriot and former Parisian teammate Angel Di Maria. At the end of his contract with the Rouge et Bleu, El Fideo signed freely with the Piedmont club. Only, the future of Paredes should not be written with the Old Lady.
Leandro Paredes close to a return to Paris
The Gazzetta dello Sport indicates that Juventus of Turin could finally transfer Leandro Paredes to Paris Saint-Germain. With his recent early elimination in the Champions League, the Old Lady should not have the resources to exercise the option to buy the Argentinian international (45 selections / 4 goals). Which is estimated at 22 million euros and subject to certain conditions. The 28-year-old midfielder is also far from satisfying the Bianconeri with only one offering delivered in 11 appearances. Similarly, the more than uncertain future of Massimiliano Allegri following this European disappointment could compromise the transfer of Paredes.
A return from the middle would not do the business of PSG. Especially since the Ile-de-France club hoped to get rid of one of its undesirables by collecting a nice check. Close to the exit at Juventus, the South American midfielder is also without a future in Paris. Next summer he will only have one year left of his contract with the capital club. Which will still try to get rid of him for fear of losing him for free in 2024, when his contract expires.
