PSG demanding £17m transfer fee for Leandro Paredes ‘as midfielder agrees personal terms with Juventus over move’

 

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are demanding £17million to sell Leandro Paredes.

With the imminent arrival of Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz to the PSG squad, Paredes is set to be pushed further down the pecking order.

Paredes, 28, has reportedly agreed personal terms with Juventus, but an agreement over a fee is yet to be struck.

Despite his low ranking in the squad in terms of minutes, Paredes is said to rank quite highly in the social popularity scale at the club.

He is said to have a particular affinity with countryman Lionel Messi and Brazilian Neymar, as well as the Spanish-speaking members of the squad.

According to Get Football French News, his departure could cause a fracture in the dressing room.

Paredes initially joined the French club from Zenit in 2019 for a reported £36m, but struggled to settle in to begin with.

In his time there he has made 115 appearances, scoring three goals and registering 10 assists, including for Messi’s stunning overhead kick against Clermont.

Juventus are looking at Paredes due to the expected departure of Adrien Rabiot.

Paredes was near the top of Juve’s list of midfield targets, but 90min can report that talks have stalled in recent days as the player himself is not completely sold on the prospect of joining the Turin-based club.

In a double-blow for Juve in the transfer market, Arthur’s move to Valencia has also stalled. 90min understands that talks have hit an impasse due to the midfielder’s wages.

Speaking recently to the press, Valencia manager Gennaro Gattuso all-but confirmed this, stating: “Arthur has a prohibitive salary for us.

“He is a great player, but we simply don’t have the possibility of signing this type of player.”

The Frenchman is reportedly on his way to Manchester United, who have opted to go for him after thus far failing to land Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.

After being excluded from the last French World Cup squad, Rabiot believes joining United would provide him with a golden opportunity to muscle his way into Didier Deschamps’s plans for Qatar.

Rabiot reportedly thinks he is guaranteed a starting spot due to United’s “weak” midfield.
