Juventus edging closer to a deal for Leandro Paredes

Juventus, Six Sports

Leandro Paredes is on the list of players allowed to exit PSG this summer and Juventus are interested in signing the player. Paredes was on Juventus’ radar for quite some time. The Bianconeri consider Paredes as the final piece of the midfield in the squad. However, the move to Turin will not be cheap. PSG are looking to get the full valuation of the player.

PSG want €20m to let the midfielder leave Parc Des Princes this season. Juventus are reluctant to pay this amount for the midfielder. However, PSG also want to offload the midfielder and will look to facilitate the transfer to Juventus. PSG and Juventus are currently holding talks on a deal that could see the Argentine playing on a loan at Allianz Stadium. The loan deal will contain a permanent buy clause in it

Juventus have signed some big players this season

The contract termination of Aaron Ramsey means there is room for a midfielder in the squad. However, to sign Paredes, the club will have to make still more room in the squad. Arthur Melo is looking to exit the club and the club can profit by selling the Brazilian to free up some space in the wage bill. According to Max Allegri, Paredes is the perfect player for his squad. Moreover, Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon has backed Paredes as the man for the job. Speaking to Calciomercato Buffon said :

“Yes, I would see him well in Juventus. Leandro, as well as being very reliable, is used to playing and being in high-level teams. He can help.”

Juventus have had some notable signings this summer. Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria arrived on free transfers from Manchester United and PSG respectively. Moreover, they have also signed Gleison Bremer from Torino and Andrea Cambiaso from Torino this summer. However, the Bianconeri are missing a deep-lying playmaker in their squad. Leandro Paredes is the perfect man for this job.
