Baldissoni: ‘Paredes wants to stay’

Roma general manager Mauro Baldissoni assures Leandro Paredes “did not ask to leave”.

The midfielder has been linked with a number of clubs, and Coach Luciano Spalletti has not always appeared confident that the youngster will remain.

“He didn’t ask to leave,” Baldissoni insisted at Bruno Peres’ presentation.

“All Spalletti said was that he [Paredes] wants to play regularly, and thus might be inclined to accept if he had other offers.

“He’d never ask to leave, and it’s not only down to him in any case. He’s a Roma player, and both sides are happy about that.”
