Paredes told PSG's website: "I'm very proud to be joining Paris St Germain.

"After my previous experiences in Italy and Russia, I now have this fantastic opportunity, not only to discover a new league, but above all to wear one of the most prestigious club jerseys in the world.

"I'd like to thank the chairman (Nasser Al-Khelaifi) and the coach (Thomas Tuchel) for the confidence they have shown in me by signing me.

"We all know the extraordinary sporting dimension of Paris St Germain, its players and staff.

"I share the same high ambitions and I will do everything I can to give my club what it expects of me as a midfielder.

"I also look forward to the passionate atmosphere of the Parc des Princes, as I grew up with football fever in Argentina."

Al-Khelaifi added: "Leandro's arrival will keep the momentum, both on the pitch and among our supporters, ahead of the major events coming up. Exciting times lie ahead."
