Leandro Paredes has joined Juventus on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain.
The deal includes an obligation to buy the player permanently “subject to the achievement of certain given sporting objectives by the end of the season” for a fee of €22.6 million, with a further €3 million in add-ons, according to an official agreement published by the Serie A side on Wednesday.
Paredes joined PSG from Zenit Saint Petersburg in 2019 and appeared in 117 games for the French champions, scoring four goals.
The Argentina international midfielder started just ten Ligue 1 games last season and has yet to start a game this season under new PSG head coach Christophe Galtier, though he has appeared four times as a substitute.
Juventus have made Paredes their eighth signing of the transfer window, following the additions of Angel Di Maria, Paul Pogba, and Bremer to Massimiliano Allegri’s squad.
The 28-year-old returns to Serie A after previously playing for Roma, with loan spells at Chievo and Empoli in between.
