PSG had been seeking to offload Leandro Paredes, but a lack of interest means he’ll stay

Le Parisien report that Argentinian midfielder Leandro Paredes was on the verge of leaving this summer.

In talks with Real Betis in recent days, the 25-year-old was in talks over a possible loan or permanent deal there. But discussions have collapsed owing to too great a financial disparity in terms of negotiating positions.

At PSG, Paredes earns €600k a month, which is far too much for Betis to cover themselves, either on loan or permanently. As a result, talks have been abandoned, and the player’s entourage indicate that there are no other options currently on offer.

Paredes does want to fight for a regular place in the PSG starting XI, but so far he has only seen four substitute appearances. He faced somewhat of a humiliation on the part of Thomas Tuchel on Friday night, when 17-year-old Adli Aouchiche was picked to start instead of Paredes away to Metz.
