Paredes said: “I have many friends at Juventus and a it could be easier for me to move to Juventus. Real Madrid, however, is a team with many champions and it be exciting for a young player like me to move there.
“Right now I am focused on the Russian league but I don’t know what can happen at the end of the season. It’s important to know that two big clubs like Juve and Real want to sign me but I think to focus on myself without any distraction.
