Paredes to Roma is Done

Leandro Paredes is now a player of A.S Roma; the details of the transaction are summarized by Italian guru Gianluca Di Marzio:

“Leandro Paredes to Rome, here we are. The deal to bring the player to the Giallorossi is practically defined as: loan for 18 months for 250 thousand euro, and a €4.5m ransom to buy. The final handshake between the clubs arrived today, but tomorrow Paredes will depart for Italy. And the confirmations on the deal was given to Argentine radio also by president of Boca, Angelic, ‘Paredes departs tomorrow, we have authorized his departure for Italy. He will go on loan to Roma because here there is no space and he wants to grow professionally.’ In reality, the operation should provide a temporary transition until June, when Paredes will be in Serie A. There is the interest of Sassuolo, in the background even Sampdoria. Meanwhile, Paredes is blocked by Roma. Bags packed, there is the capital in the future.”
