Leandro Paredes left PSG and was loaned to Juventus. The Argentine starred in one of the most striking movements in the recent transfer market. Although the news was confirmed a few days ago, it was only this Friday that Lionel Messi dedicated a few words to his compatriot to say goodbye publicly.
“Many successes in your new stage, Leandro Paredes. It was wonderful to share so many things in Paris and I will always remember all the beautiful moments we lived together”, 'Leo' wrote, in a post on his Instagram account, where he shared postcards with the midfielder.
Hour after the post, Paredes, who witnessed the victory of the 'Vecchia Signora' over Spezia on Wednesday, responded to Messi. “I'm going to miss you little one, see you soon”, he put on the social network.

On the other hand, Messi also addressed Ander Herrera, who is now part of Athletic Club. “Good luck to you too, Ander Herrera, I loved meeting you, I thank you for how you received me from day one and I wish you the best on your return to LaLiga”, was the message from 'Leo'.
PSG, with renewed midfielder
Leandro Paredes' departure is framed in the renovation of the Parisian midfield that has been undertaken by the new sports directors, the football adviser Luis Campos and the coach Christophe Galtier.
The PSG has already loaned out Dutchman Georginio Wijnaldum (Rome), Spaniard Ander Herrera (Athletic Club) and 21-year-old Frenchman Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe (Eintracht Frankfurt). He also got rid of the Senegalese Idrissa Gueye, bound for Everton.
To replace them, the team signed the Portuguese Vitinha and Renato Sanches, and the Spanish Fabián Ruiz and Carlos Soler.
