Paris Saint-Germain is pleased to announce the signing of Leandro Daniel Paredes.
The Argentinian midfielder, who arrived from Zenit St Petersburg, has signed a four-and-a-half year deal with the club until 30 June 2023 after completing his medical examination at Aspetar Hospital in Doha.
The 25-year-old from San Justo in the Buenos Aires region came through the academy at Boca Juniors, one of the Argentine capital's leading clubs. Whilst at Boca he won the Apertura Championship (2011) and an Argentine Cup (2012) before moving to Italy, spending two seasons at AS Roma (2014-2015 and 2016-2017) playing 54 matches.
"We are very happy to welcome Leandro Paredes into the Paris Saint-Germain family today," said Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Chairman and CEO of Paris Saint-Germain. “Leandro brings with him the traditional strengths of Argentinian football- a fighting spirit and excellent technical skills.
He will bring a lot to our midfield and I am sure he will fit quickly into our coach's well-organised and ambitious team. Leandro's arrival will keep the momentum, both on the pitch and among our supporters, ahead of the major events coming up. Exciting times lie ahead.”
