Jese Rodriguez was one of the most talked about youngsters in European football, as he rose through the ranks at Real Madrid having joined the club from Huracan as a 14-year-old. However, nine years down the line and his career doesn’t seem to have headed anywhere.
At Real Madrid, the Spaniard failed to make much of an impact after making his senior debut for Los Blancos in 2011. In his five year journey with the first team squad, Jese managed to impress only in flashes, scoring a paltry 18 goals in 94 appearances and failing to get ahead of the big name stalwarts at the club.
With his progression not happening at a desirable rate, Jese decided to move on from the Santiago Bernabeu and sealed a transfer to PSG this past summer for €25 million. Five months down the line though, and it has been more of the same for the 23-year-old.
Jese has started just one Ligue 1 game for PSG so far, scoring a solitary goal in his 261 minutes for Les Parisiens. It has also been reported that PSG manager Unai Emery has been disgruntled by the youngster’s attitude, with the player refusing to make any effort to learn French.
There has already been speculation linking Jese with a move away from Parc des Princes, with the likes of AC Milan, AS Roma and Liverpool said to be interested in signing the forward. His agent Armando Ufarte also confirmed the interest in Jese, claiming that he’s considering several offers.
Balague believes that Liverpool are not interested in bringing Jese to Anfield, while fellow Premier League outfit Middlesbrough are among the other clubs that do want to sign the player on loan. It now remains to be seen whether the Spaniard ends his Parisian misery in January or stays on at the Parc des Princes.
