Pablo Mart√≠n Ledesma (born on February 4, 1984 in La Falda, C√≥rdoba) is an Argentine professional football player who currently plays for Calcio Catania of Serie A, joining them from Boca Juniors on 1 July 2008. Before moving to Boca's youth divisions he played for F√ļtbol Juvenil FC. His debut for Boca was on July 12, 2003 when Boca lost to Col√≥n de Santa Fe 2-1.

In the Copa Libertadores 2007 Ledesma was a driving force down the right side of midfield for the eventual Champions. He strikes the ball well and has the lung power to break into the penalty area - as highlighted twice in the latter stages of the competition.

Ledesma scored a clever close-range flick against Colombia's C√ļcuta in the Semi Final 1st leg and a brave header at the end of the 1st Leg of the Final against Gremio. He was signed by Catania during the 2008/2009 summer transfer window. He was one of several players, including the likes of Ezequiel Carboni, Nicolae Dica, and Michele Paolucci, who all were signed by the Sicilian club as of during the 2008 summer transfer window, making Catania one of the most active clubs in the transfer market, along with Sicilian rivals Palermo. He has been one of Catania's most consistent performers in his first season in Italy, and has been a regular in the first team.

He made his debut with the Argentina national football team against Chile, 18 April, 2007.
