Juventus appear to have made a decision about the future of Leandro Paredes

January 26, 2023 - 10:18 am

It is looking very unlikely that Argentinian international Leandro Paredes will be joining Juventus on a permanent basis, it seems that the player may be saying his goodbyes in June 2023. 

As reported by Tuttomerocatweb the Bianconeri are not keen on extending Paredes’s loan period to next season after the midfielders’ disappointing performances during the first half of this season.

Juventus are under no obligation to keep the 28-year-old on, not when he has failed to live up to expectations and it is hardly a surprise that the club have decided to let him return to PSG in the summer.

It is unfortunate that Paredes failed to impress Juve, he is, without a doubt, a top talent but has simply not shown that on a consistent basis. Cynics may say that he used Juve to get match-fit for the last world cup but he would not be the first player to do that.

Juventus and Max Allegri will now have to get their heads together and decide who they will bring in next summer as a replacement for Paredes and the chances are he will not be the only midfielder to leave with the likes of Weston McKennie also expected to depart.

    top talent?
    still keep praising paredes till the end.
    just one drop ball to chiesa and suddenly parede a great top talent LOL
    performing good enough when the whole team play well it just a matter of good luck to made some contribution.
    but look at fagioli? he carried juve out of that dark holes.
    or rovella who skinned parede to shame on their 1st encounters, even in coppa where rovela came in on 2nd half, he changed the games and parede still do nothing.

    if locatelli can play 90minutes vs napoli, it wouldn’t be 5-1.

    with such a high salary at 7.8M per season, and performance sometimes under our u23, how could people still see parede as great talents? amazingly keep fooling them self.

    I agree 100%, look at the midfielders Juve has. Build a strong centerfield with Italian youngsters like Miretti, Fagioli, Rovella, Locatelli and add the extra with Big Pog. Should be the focus to build on within our own ranks. It should definitely not be a priority to invest in big name players who cost a fortune.
