The management of Juventus Turin would consider taking a radical decision on the Argentinian midfielder Leandro Paredes, on loan since last summer from Paris Saint-Germain. The Old Lady would consider not exercising her call option.
On August 31, Juventus Turin formalized the arrival of Leandro Paredes, from Paris Saint-Germain. Pushed towards the exit by the new Parisian coach Christophe Galtier, the Argentine midfielder signed up with the Old Lady of Massimiliano Allegri in the form of a one-season loan with an option to buy 22.6 million euros, a deal including a maximum of 3 million euros in bonuses depending on the achievement of certain objectives.
Three starts in Serie A
Since coming to the other side of the Alps, the 28-year-old has taken part in 13 matches in all competitions, including 9 Serie A matches. Problem, the native of San Justo has so far only three starts in the league . Barred by competition, Leandro Paredes, on the other hand, participated in the first four days of the group stage of the Champions League, each time in the starting lineup, a C1 concluded with a pitiful elimination before the round of 16 (3rd in the Group H behind Benfica Lisbon and Paris Saint-Germain). Reversed in the Europa League, the Transalpins will face FC Nantes in the play-offs.

End of contract in 2024
What about his future now? Under contract until June 2024 with Paris, the former member of Zénith Saint-Petersburg should not drag on with the Bianconeri. According to information from The Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus Turin would consider not exercising the option to buy the Argentinian international, retained by Albiceleste coach Lionel Scaloni for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. In other words, his services would not sufficiently convince the Turin staff, especially since the cost of his final transfer promises to be substantial.
