| sbobet asia Clubs might want to get their transfer business done early this summer, but for those interested in Zenit St Petersburg’s Leandro Paredes, they’ll have to wait.
The Argentine central midfielder has already said that any decision he makes about his future will wait until after the World Cup.
Liverpool were rumoured to have made a £26.5million bid for Paredes in January 2017, and he’s since attracted attention from Real Madrid and Juventus. According to Italian reports, he is now a Manchester United transfer target.
Players and clubs know that a World Cup can make or break a player’s valuation, and so a man who says he’ll wait until afterwards seems like a man confident of a relatively productive summer.
While he’s behind Javier Mascherano and Lucas Biglia in the pecking order, Paredes is a consistent fixture of Jorge Sampaoli’s squads. By the time of the World Cup, Mascherano and Biglia will have a combined age of 66, so are likely to be rotated heavily. sbobet asia
A training ground injury in 2013 hampered what could have been a break-out season for him aged 19, but the following year he moved to Italy. His road to Roma took a short diversion to Chievo after the Giallorossi realised they had filled their quota of non-EU players for the season.
When he left Argentina he was an advanced playmaker, with comparisons drawn to Juan Román Riquelme, but in Italy he learned to play deeper.
Joining Roma in 2014/15, Paredes had a season on loan at Empoli in 2015/16 – the assistant coach there, Giovanni Martusciello, said: “he could easily become the next playmaker for Argentina.”
Back in the capital, Paredes started 15 times in the league for Roma in 2016/17 before joining Zenit last summer for €27million, where he has scored three and assisted twice in 22 games . sbobet asia
