Leandro Paredes, who arrived at Paris Saint-Germain in 2019, made a summer move to AS Roma. While the base transfer fee stood at €2.5 million, additional bonuses totaling €2 million are contingent on the midfielder's physical condition.

Fabrizio Romano first reported the information in a breakdown of the Paredes sale to AS Roma from PSG.

Paredes was originally acquired during the winter transfer window in 2019, arriving at Paris Saint-Germain from Zénith Saint-Petersburg for a substantial fee of €47 million. After four and a half years, which included a loan spell at Juventus, the 29-year-old Argentine midfielder, no longer in PSG's plans, was offloaded to AS Roma in the summer for a fee of €2.5 million. This move was seen as a necessary step by Paris Saint-Germain to part ways with the player.

Tiago Pinto, the sporting director of AS Roma, addressed the press during a conference and discussed the summer transfer window, shedding light on the negotiations with Luis Campos, which he described as "difficult." The details revealed included the presence of bonuses totaling €2 million, which PSG will receive if Leandro Paredes starts 80% of the matches for Roma as a starter.

However, these bonuses may prove challenging to attain, given Paredes' relatively fragile physical condition and his performance history in recent seasons. In the current season with Roma, he has started two out of three matches and was substituted off at halftime in one of them.
