Galtier reveals Juventus-linked Paredes is in demand and could leave PSG
Christophe Galtier revealed Leandro Paredes is in demand and gave a strong indication he could leave Paris Saint-Germain before the transfer window closes.
Paredes is reported to have agreed terms with Juventus and a move is expected to go through if Adrien Rabiot joins Manchester United.
The Argentina midfielder has been frustrated by a lack of playing time at PSG, who he joined from Zenit in 2019.
Paredes replaced Vitinha for the final 20 minutes of the champions' 5-2 Ligue 1 thrashing of Montpellier on Saturday, but Galtier is unsure whether he will still be at the club when the transfer window closes on September 1.
The PSG head coach said in a press conference: "The situation Paredes is very different from Mauro Icardi's.
"Leandro has many requests and I don't know what will happen between now and the end of the transfer market. I know he wants to play, but he has a calm mood."
Galtier has strengthened his midfield with the signings of Vitinha and Renato Sanches, keeping Paredes down the pecking order.
The 28-year-old only started 15 games for PSG last season.
