Leandro Daniel Paredes (Spanish pronunciation: [leˈandɾo paˈɾeðes]; born 29 June 1994) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a central midfielder for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and the Argentina national team.

Career[edit]

Boca Juniors[edit]

Paredes made his league debut for Boca Juniors in a 2–0 away defeat to Argentinos Juniors on 6 November 2010. On 29 January 2014, he joined Italian Serie A outfit Chievo Verona for the rest of the 2013–14 season.[1]

Roma[edit]

It was revealed that Roma agreed to sign Paredes from Boca Juniors on loan with a reported €4.5 million pre-set price, however Roma ran out of non-EU registration quota for international transfer. He was signed by Chievo instead.[2]

On 19 July 2014 Paredes joined Roma in a temporary deal, with an option to buy outright from Boca Juniors.[3] On 27 September 2014, Paredes made his Roma debut, as a second-half substitute in the 2–0 win against Hellas Verona.[4] On 8 February 2015, Paredes scored his first Roma goal in the club's 2–1 victory against Cagliari.[5] In June 2015 Roma signed Paredes for €6.067 million.[6]

Zenit Saint Petersburg[edit]

On 1 July 2017, Zenit announced the signing of Paredes on a four-year contract. The fee is €23 million with possible future €4 million add-ons.[7] [8]

Paris Saint-Germain[edit]

On 29 January 2019, French club Paris Saint-Germain announced the signing of Paredes on a four and-a-half year contract,[9] for an initial €40 million, potentially rising to €47 million.[10][11]

International career[edit]

On 19 May 2017, Paredes received his first senior call-up by newly appointed coach Jorge Sampaoli for Argentina's friendlies against Brazil and Singapore in June.[12] He made his senior international debut in the match against Singapore on 13 June, helping Argentina to a 6–0 away win, and also marked his debut by scoring his first international goal.[13]

In May 2018 he was named in Argentina’s preliminary 35-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia[14] but did not make the final 23.[15] On 21 May 2019, Paredes was included in Lionel Scaloni's final 23-man Argentina squad for the 2019 Copa América.[16]
