Leandro Paredes has revealed the key role Angel Di Maria played in convincing him to join Juventus.
Paredes spoke for the first time since moving to Turin from PSG. He revealed the role Di Maria played in convincing him to join Juventus.
“Since I learned that Di Maria would end up at Juve, we started talking. I did everything to come,” he said. “I have already told [lui] that he should stay another year. And I hope to convince him”.
Paredes and Di Maria spent several years together at PSG and also know each other from playing for Argentina. The latter signed a few weeks before Paredes on a free transfer, and his current contract is due to expire at the end of the season.
Paredes and Di Maria aren’t the only signings for Juventus this summer, as Bremer, Filip Kostic and Paul Pogba have also joined the club. Juventus have had an indifferent start to the season, however, with three draws in their first five league matches.
