Leandro Paredes has officially completed a permanent transfer to Roma and will wear number 16 next season.

The Argentine midfielder has returned to the capital on a permanent transfer from PSG, valued at around 2.5 million euros. He has signed a contract until June 2025 at the Stadio Olimpico. Paredes will wear Roma’s No.16 shirt in 2023-2024. It’s an emblematic number for the Giallorossi, as it previously belonged to club legend De Rossi. In his first interview with the club, Paredes revealed that he had spoken to the former Giallorossi midfielder, asking his permission to obtain his team number. “I wouldn’t have allowed this to happen without Daniele’s permission,” said Paredes, who had played with De Rossi at Roma.
