Paredes touched down in Rome yesterday.
"I am a Roma player. I'm very happy, it was what I wanted," Paredes told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I'm only a little confused, I didn't expect it to happen so quickly.
"The fans of Boca are know around the world but also the Giallorossi are very welcoming. I am looking forward to playing.
"My foot injury? It is better, in 10 days I will resume training. My goal in this year-and-a-half is to push Roma to redeem my rights."
