Manchester United are interested in a move for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Leandro Paredes.
The Lowdown: Paredes profiled
Described as a player with ‘perfect’ tempo by former PSG midfielder Fabrice Pancrate, Paredes is valued at £15.3m by Transfermarkt, and it looks as if he is on United’s radar as they seek midfield reinforcements.
The Latest: United interested in Paredes
According to Sky Sports journalist Angelo Mangiante, United are ‘interested’ in a move for Paredes, with talks ongoing between the parties involved.
Recent reports elsewhere have claimed that the Red Devils have made an enquiry for the midfielder, although a £30m asking price has made a move complicated.
How many signings do Man Utd need to make this summer?
The Verdict: Good option?
If United can lower that reported £30m asking price, a move for Paredes could be a shrewd one.
Erik ten Hag has limited defensive and central midfield options ahead of the new season at this moment in time, so Paredes would bolster both areas and could be a smart squad depth signing if the price is right alongside a potential marquee addition in Frenkie de Jong.
