Paredes, 28, has reportedly agreed personal terms with Juventus, but an agreement over a fee is yet to be struck.

Despite his low ranking in the squad in terms of minutes, Paredes is said to rank quite highly in the social popularity scale at the club.

He is said to have a particular affinity with countryman Lionel Messi and Brazilian Neymar, as well as the Spanish-speaking members of the squad.

According to Get Football French News, his departure could cause some fracture in the dressing room.

Paredes initially joined the French club from Zenit in 2019 for a reported £36m, but struggled to settle in to begin with.

In his time there he has made 115 appearances, scoring three goals and registering 10 assists, including for Messi’s stunning overhead kick against Clermont.

Juventus are looking at Paredes due to the expected departure of Adrien Rabiot.

The Frenchman is reportedly on his way to Manchester United, who have opted to go for him after thus far failing to land Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.

After being excluded from the last French World Cup squad, Rabiot believes joining United would provide him with a golden opportunity to muscle his way into Didier Deschamps’s plans for Qatar.

Rabiot reportedly thinks he is guaranteed a starting spot due to United’s “weak” midfield.
