Paredes to Juventus if PSG bring back Kean

Leandro Paredes

Reports are growing that Juventus will bring in Leandro Paredes from PSG, as Moise Kean could return to Paris in exchange.

The swap deal would resolve the problems of both clubs and players, who are seeking more playing time in the coming campaign.

Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà claims the idea has been circulating for over a month now.

It would be a return to Serie A for Paredes, who turns 28 next week, as he already played for Chievo, Empoli and Roma before leaving towards Zenit St Petersburg in 2017.

The Argentina international made only 22 competitive appearances for PSG this term, scoring one goal and contributing one assist.

As for Kean, he is still desperately trying to recapture the form he showed in the Paris Saint-Germain jersey during the loan spell from Everton, scoring 17 goals in 41 games.

His transfer status is a little complicated, as he returned to Juve on loan from Everton with obligation to buy for €28m.

However, he struggled to make an impact in Turin with six goals and does not appear to be in Max Allegri’s plans.

Sportitalia also reported via correspondent Tancredi Palmeri that Paredes is very close to joining Juventus.
