Leandro Paredes ‘To Complete PSG Transfer After Chelsea Move Too Slowly’

Chelsea are set to miss out on midfield target Leandro Paredes as he is on the verge of completing a £35million move to Paris Saint-Germain.

According to the Telegraph,  Paredes spent Wednesday in Paris to finalise the deal and the club are confident the deal will go through sooner rather than later.

Chelsea reportedly agreed a deal in principle earlier this month to sign the Argentinian from Zenit St Petersburg as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas.

But after failing to move quickly enough, PSG have swooped to snatch the 24-year-old from under the Blues’ noses and solve their midfield crisis.

Thomas Tuechel was desperate to strengthen the position ahead of their Champions League clash with Manchester United after losing Marco Verratti to injury.

Parades provides an instant solution as they chase European glory, whilst Chelsea must now go back to the drawing board and focus on other targets.
