Paredes reveals why he snubbed a move to Chelsea

Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of Argentine midfielder Leandro Paredes.

The former Roma midfielder was strongly linked with a move to Chelsea but PSG have stolen the move with Chelsea failing to act on time. Paredes has now revealed why he ditched the Blues in favour of the Paris giants.

“I’m very proud to be joining Paris Saint-Germain.  After my previous experiences in Italy and Russia, I now have this fantastic opportunity, not only to discover a new league, but above all one to wear one the most prestigious club jerseys in the world.”

“I’d like to thank the chairman and the coach for the confidence they have shown in me by signing me. We all know the extraordinary sporting dimension of Paris Saint-Germain, its players and staff.”

“I share the same high ambitions and I will do everything I can to give my club what it expects of me as a midfielder. I also look forward to the passionate atmosphere of the Parc des Princes, as I grew up with football fever in Argentina.”

Chelsea let go of Cesc Fabregas earlier this month leaving Jorginho as the only player who can play in Sarri’s holding midfield role.
