Leandro Paredes has joined AS Roma and already started training.
Paredes is back at his old club, putting pen to paper on a contract which will keep him with Roma until June 30, 2025. The 29 year old has joined on a permanent deal from Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentine spoke about the return himself. Speaking with AS Roma’s official website, here is what he had to say:
“Coming back to Rome is always a special thing, but doing so now as a Roma player is even more special.
“I’d like to thank the fans for welcoming me and Roma for bringing me back to the club where I launched my career in Europe. Last year was an incredibly happy one for me with the World Cup, so now I want to keep tasting success and I’m convinced I can do just that with this team.”
Tiago Pinto, Roma’s general manager of football also spoke about Paredes:
“As soon as he heard that we were interested, Leandro made it clear that his target was to return to Roma. His strong willpower made us even more convinced that we should bring him back to the Giallorossi and we’re delighted to see him back in Roma colours.
“Ever since his first stint here, he has matured and gained international experience, combined with his knowledge of Italian football and his technical attributes, we’re sure this will all prove to be crucial and strengthen our squad.”
He will be playing alongside fellow Argentine World Cup winner, Paulo Dybala.
