Real Madrid is the eye-catcher club in the world. Their three consecutive magical Champions League knockout victories and early LaLiga title this season have booked the fact that this club operates on a unique level.
It is reckon that every player would dream to play for Real, because this is one of those few clubs where if you play for them, you know you have reached the limestone of football.
Kylian Mbappe is the most precious player in the world, and he is fully anticipated to quit PSG for Real Madrid this summer as a free transfer following waiting down his deal just to move to the Merengues.
And Achraf Hakimi, his current teammate at PSG, also aspires of a move back to Madrid.
Yet Mbappe and Hakimi are not the only PSG players who have made it crystal clear they would like to play for Madrid one day.
Their teammate and underestimated midfielder Leandro Paredes can be counted as among those who wish to be a Madridista.
He notified TyC Sports, via Fabrizio Romano, “I’d love to play for Real Madrid one day, it’s a top club – but I respect Paris Saint-Germain and I’m more than happy here.”
Paredes is a crucial player to PSG and one of their only capable midfielders, so it is in the club’s best interests to secure him. But it is interesting for him to name-drop Real Madrid – which is surely a genuine wish – maybe to put pressure on their management, knowing how much that club’s ‘leadership’ scorns Real Madrid.
Real Madrid knocked PSG out of the Champions League Round of 16 with a quick-fire comeback, credits goes to Karim Benzema’s hat trick. That had to have made a feeling on the opposition.
Real Madrid are keen in adding another midfielder, however Paredes might not be considered. He is a good player, but Madrid want to sign an even better and younger Ligue 1 midfielder.
This season, Paredes is completing nearly 96% of his passes in Ligue 1 for the PSG and remains one of the more undervalued players at his position in Europe.
