Leandro Paredes, no longer welcomed at PSG
According to recent information revealed by L'Equipe, Leandro Paredes, on loan to Juventus, is no longer welcome in the PSG locker room and will need to find a new home after he returns to the French capital next July.
The reason for this breakup in the relationship between Paredes and the players of PSG, reports L'Equipe, hails from his altercation with Sergio Ramos in the Champions League earlier this season.
After a rather mediocre season at Juventus, the Argentine world champion will return to PSG next summer once his loan expires. Although Paredes is loaned with a purchase option valued at €20m, Juventus don't plan to pay that amount after failing to meet the conditions to make it a mandatory option (Juventus needed to qualify for the UCL R16, which they didn't).
According to recent information obtained by L'Equipe, the 28-year-old midfielder will no longer be welcomed at Camp des Loges nor the PSG locker room, so the only option left on his future is just signing with another team that PSG can send him to.
The altercation with Sergio Ramos took place back in Sep. 6th in the Champions League, and it marked a point of no return in the relationship between Paredes and PSG.
The sports newspaper also revealed another unknown fact, namely that Kylian Mbappe would not like to have Paredes back at PSG, aligning with the feelings of the veteran Spanish defender in this saga. Not to mention, Paredes reigned supreme over Mbappe in the Qatar World Cup, which might still be hurting Kylian's feelings.
Last year, Luis Campos already tried to sell Paredes but he failed at it, instead opting to send him out of Paris on loan as the last-resort option. It's often been mentioned that Paredes' personality clashes with most players in PSG's locker room, so that's a clear reason why they wanted out as soon as possible last summer already
Leandro Paredes is under contract at Paris Saint-Germain until 2024, and his hefty €8m salary per season might actually make for a tall hurdle to overcome by PSG when it comes to finding a suitor.
