We are only talking about reinforcements at PSG, yet the French champion must also empty his locker room. And one of the players pushed out, Leandro Paredes, pulled out an asset that everyone is ignoring.
On the side of the regulars of the Parc des Princes, we are pleased with the way in which Paris Saint-Germain begins this transfer window, the departure of Leonardo having sounded the glass of the signatures of big names, or market opportunities. Luis Campos is more of a pragmatic type, even if the Portuguese leader has the Emir of Qatar’s checkbook to recruit players, which is a huge asset. But if the possible signings of Renato Sanches and Vitinha testify to this change of strategy even at PSG, it remains to achieve what Leonardo missed every year, namely selling players. For this, Nasser Al-Khelaifi is counting on Antero Henrique, the latter having the art and the way of getting players to leave. This summer, Paris Saint-Germain compiled a list of “ undesirable “And among the players that PSG wants to see leave, there is Leandro Paredes, recruited in the 2019 winter transfer window in Russia for the tidy sum of 47 million euros. However, the Argentine’s contract situation suddenly changed.
Leandro Paredes a surprise for Campos at PSG
Officially, the 27-year-old midfielder had signed until June 2023, and he was therefore entering his last year of contract with Paris Saint-Germain. However, according to L’Equipe, there was a small line in Leandro Paredes’ contract which provided that an option for an additional year was triggered automatically, unless the player denounced it. And that was not the case, which means that the former Zénith Saint-Petersburg player is now under contract with PSG until June 2024. Not enough to encourage Lionel Messi’s compatriot to leave during this summer even if clubs are proven. The sports daily talks about Manchester United, Inter, Juventus or even Monaco, but the midfielder recently reminded him that he had no intention of moving next season, preferring to stay in Paris where he has a salary of 750,000 euros per month. Enough to justify his wish to stay in the capital, even if the competition will be terrible in his sector of play, while Paredes must secure a place in the Argentina team for the World Cup in Qatar.
