Leandro Paredes has confirmed that he will be staying at Paris Saint-Germain this summer, quashing rumours that he would return to his native Argentina.

Paredes joined PSG back in January 2019 and has largely been used in a rotational capacity since. During the 2021/22 campaign injuries restricted him to just 15 Ligue 1 appearances - his lowest seasonal tally since he arrived in the French capital.

With his contract set to expire next summer, the midfielder had been linked with a move away from PSG - Juventus and former club Boca Juniors were both mentioned as possible destinations.

However, Paredes put an end to these rumours on Monday evening, committing his short-term future to PSG.

"I’m gonna stay at Paris Saint-Germain this summer. It’s not time to leave the club or to join Boca Juniors," he told Radio La Red.

Although Paredes is poised to remain at the club, PSG are still likely to trim their flabby squad this summer.

In the goalkeeping department, Marcin Bulka and Alexandre Letellier have already agreed to leave, while Sergio Rico and Alphonse Areola are likely to join them out the exit door.

Georginio Wijnaldum, Rafinha and Pablo Sarabia could be moved on to as PSG consider deals for the likes of Christopher Nkunku, Ousmane Dembele and Paul Pogba.
