PSG star: I was wrong not to accept Juventus’ offer

Leandro Paredes reveals that he was too close to join Juventus and would line up to become Andrea Pirlo’s successor, but stressed that he made a mistake when he refused.

The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder is no stranger to Serie A, having already played for Empoli and Roman.

He could have joined another Serie A team even earlier, as he told the Argentine newspaper Ole.

“When Juventus came in to buy me in 2011, the sporting director wanted me to play as an organizing midfielder. I told him he was crazy. In the end, I stayed in Boca. At the time I thought I would never play that kind of role in midfield, but that was a mistake,” said Paredes.

Paredes became part of Paris Saint-Germain in 2019 and is an important player of the French club.
