He began his career at Santiago Morning youth ranks and was promoted in 2000.
In 2009, he joined Chilean giants Colo-Colo signing a three-year contract. That season Paredes was an undisputed player and helped the team to win the Torneo Clausura, where was a key player in the final against Universidad Católica scoring two remembered goals to Paulo Garcés.
