Top of the Turkish league after 33 rounds, Galatasaray are interested in Argentinian world champion Leandro Paredes, currently on loan to Juventus Turin from PSG.

What if, after Mauro Icardi, scorer of 20 goals this season, Galatasaray were to succeed in reviving Leandro Paredes, author of a very average season at Juventus Turin, where he is on loan from PSG with an option to buy? Although the 28-year-old Argentinian world champion recently confessed his desire to stay in Turin, the trend is for him to return to Paris this summer, before making another move.

PSG wants to facilitate Paredes' departure

And according to Turkish media outlet Fotomac, Galatasaray are interested in Leandro Paredes. An interest confirmed by Italian journalist Matteo Moretto, who revealed a few days ago that PSG were planning to facilitate the departure of their Argentine midfielder this summer by making him available for "an almost derisory price". According to Moretto, initial contacts have been made between Galatasaray and Paredes.

On Wednesday, the Argentinian version of ESPN reported that Chelsea and Atlético Madrid were also monitoring Leandro Paredes, who had reportedly refused to return to Boca Juniors this summer, wishing to remain in Europe.
