It has become accustomed to seeing many big-name Argentine players end up returning to their home country to finish off their lengthy careers. Players such as Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano made returns to Argentina and are currently playing out their final days as professional footballers. For current Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Leandro Paredes, this may be a route that he could be intrigued on taking.
Paredes began his career playing with Boca Juniors before moving on to Serie A to play with for three different teams. The Argentine midfielder only played in 29 games before leaving Boca. Still, he is eyeing a possible return to the club but does not anticipate this coming relatively soon. Paredes spoke to ESPN Argentina about his mindset towards hoping to return to Boca.
“The idea is to return to play in La Bombonera, with that shirt and all those people,” Paredes said.
If Paredes wants to return to Boca, he already has in mind who to contact in order to facilitate the possible transfer: Juan Román Riquelme.
“We talk from time to time, but no football, always of the family,” Paredes said. “If I ask him for any other advice he will tell me to call him when I want to return.”
Paredes also confirmed that he is slated to soon recover from his thigh injury and is expected to also feature with the Argentina national team next month. Paredes’ promising recovery from his injury comes at a good time for both teams.
