Leandro Paredes’ move from Paris Saint-Germain to Juventus looked to be a smart move in the summer but things haven’t really gone to plan for the Argentinian.

The 28-year-old midfielder joined the Bianconeri on a loan deal with a conditional obligation to buy clause in the summer, adding an experienced and creative option to Massimiliano Allegri’s midfield. Unfortunately for Paredes, he hasn’t started for Juventus since their 1-0 loss to Monza and he’s started to slip down the pecking order in Turin.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are not likely to sign Paredes on a permanent deal and the 28-year-old is set to return to Paris Saint-Germain next summer. 

The clause attached to his loan deal was linked to qualification for the Round of 16 of the Champions League, meaning the Bianconeri are under no obligation to pay €27.8m to make his stay in the Piedmont capital permanent. 

Paredes has provided one assist for Juventus across his 13 appearances under Allegri this season.
