Leandro Paredes retweets ‘Welcome to Chelsea’ video as rumours of Stamford Bridge move emerge

Leandro Paredes appears to have hinted at a January move to Chelsea by retweeting a ‘Welcome to Chelsea’ video on social media website Twitter.

Paredes, the midfielder, has been linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge following the departure of Cesc Fabregas to Monaco.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri wants to bring in a new midfielder to cover for the loss of the Spaniard, and Paredes is on the club’s shortlist alongside Nicolo Barella, the Cagliari and Italy star.

Leandro Paredes currently plays for Zenit St Petersburg

A deal for Paredes is believed to be the more likely as Cagliari are unwilling to cash in on their prized asset midway through a season, and the player himself appears to have hinted he will join the Blues.

Paredes, who currently represents Zenit Saint Petersburg, retweeted a ‘Welcome to Chelsea’ video which was shared when someone responded to the question: ‘Nicolo Barella or Leandro Paredes?’

Should Paredes sign for Chelsea, he could be joined at Stamford Bridge by Argentina team-mate Gonzalo Higuain.

Higuain has made it clear he wants to leave Milan amid interest in the forward from Chelsea, with the Blues exploring the possibility of signing the 31-year-old from Juventus, his parent club.
