Leandro Paredes grew up in Argentina playing for Boca Juniors and he knows what it means to play for a club with incredibly passionate fans. When he arrived in Rome, he spent a long time with another great fan and admirer of the glorious Argentine club, Daniele De Rossi.
The legendary captain of the Lupi has never hidden his desire to play at Boca Juniors at the end of his career. That moment may have arrived and Leandro Paredes firmly believes De Rossi could be moving to Argentina soon.
When asked about De Rossi’s possibilities to join Boca Juniors, Paredes stated: “Knowing Daniele I can say that there are many possibilities. He is a fan of Boca and he always said that.”
“I’ve played two-three years with him and I wouldn’t be surprised. We have always talked about this. This is his dream and I believe he can achieve it. When he could, he always followed the club…this is his passion beyond Roma,” stated Paredes to ESPN.
