PSG and Juventus reach full deal for Leandro Paredes

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio and others, PSG have finally reached an agreement with Italian club Juventus for midfielder Leandro Paredes.

The Argentine international was included on a list of players PSG deemed surplus to requirement this summer and he has been subject to interest from Juve all off-season, but it has taken until the final few days of the window to find a full deal, despite personal terms between player and club being sorted at the start of the month.

The two clubs have agreed on a loan move with an option to buy of €20m, that clause that becomes mandatory if certain criteria are met during Paredes’ season with Juve. Di Marzio reports that the fee is broken down into a €15m amount initially plus €5m in bonuses.

Paredes is expected to fly to Turin imminently to undergo a medical after being left out of PSG’s squad for their mid-week trip to Toulouse in Ligue 1 tonight, as coach Christophe Galtier explained yesterday.
