Journalist explains why Manchester United should pursue PSG midfielder

A few weeks ago, Manchester United reportedly asked about Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Leandro Paredes. However, the Red Devils were put off by the Argentine’s price tag.

PSG want 35 million euros for the midfielder which led to the Premier League outfit being walked away. Paredes still has two years left on his contract with the current Ligue 1 champions so the French giants don’t need to sell the midfielder.

However, even at the asking price The Parisians want Paredes, journalist Pete O’Rourke spoke with Soccer FanCaststating Manchester United should pursue the 28-year-old given he brings something different to the job.

Moreover, O’Rourke adds that Paredes is a player the fans would like to grow up as he has similar characteristics to Roy Keane which is why the journalist says the Argentine would be a good signing for the Premier League club. .

“I think United fans would love to see him. He’s not afraid of a tackle or anything; he likes to stay stuck in. He also takes a lot of bookings, which he did during his time at the PSG. If he’s half as good as Roy Keane, he’ll be a brilliant signing for Manchester United,” O’Rourke said.

“He’s a slightly different player to Roy Keane in that respect, but he’s definitely someone who would add some steel to that Manchester United midfielder who has been criticized in the past.”

As of now, there are no new reports linking Manchester United with Paredes, who is on a tour of Japan with the rest of his PSG teammates.
