Leandro Paredes (28), currently on loan at Juventus from Paris Saint-Germain, has said that he hopes to remain at the Italian side beyond the end of the season, during an interview with Dazn.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano reported back in March that the Argentinian World Champion was unlikely to remain at the Serie A side beyond the end of his season-long loan. The expectation was that he would return to PSG, at which point a decision would be made on his future.
However, Paredes is seemingly hoping that Juventus will activate the €22m purchase clause to make the move permanent at the end of the season. In an interview with Dazn, transcribed by 90min, Paredes said, “I am happy. I don’t know if I’m staying, but I’m hoping we’ll find the best solution for everyone. Personally, I’m happy in Turin, my family too, so we want to stay at Juventus.”
Paredes began the season at Les Parisiens before moving to Turin, and since arriving at the Serie A club, he has made 30 appearances, scoring once and registering one assist. It remains to be seen whether the Argentine will get his wish and remain in Italy, or whether he will have to return to the Parc des Princes at the end of the season.
