The 1998 world champion, invited to give his opinion on the new recruit of PSG, Leandro Paredes, did not seem convinced by the choice of Parisians to appeal to the Argentine. "What is Paris Saint-Germain looking for? It seemed to me that they were looking for a number 6, Allan style, Casemiro, Kanté, said Frank Leboeuf in RMC Sport. Warriors, guys who knew how to get dirty. We can see that he does not know how to defend, that's all. This is nothing the Paris Saint-Germain is looking for. If they are looking for a copy of Verratti, they have found it. Because even Verratti is even stronger defensively. "
If Leboeuf believes that Paredes is not the solution for PSG, however, he recognizes undeniable qualities in the Argentine international: "He is an excellent ball manager with excellent pass quality, he breaks lines and allows opportunities, he feels the game, he feels the movement, he is a very good player, but it is not the profile he is looking for simply."
