According to L’Equipe, a French sports newspaper, Real Madrid has transferred attacker Jesé Rodríguez to PSG for 25 million euros. Official confirmation by the clubs would occur shortly.
Los Blancos let go of the promising striker, who scored six goals last season. Like most of the recent transfers, the club has an option to buy the player back, like Morata, Carvajal and others.
Zinedine Zidane didn’t use him in the last match against Chelsea, since rumors about his departure started after the PSG clash.
Along with former Castilla man Lucas Vázquez, Jesé became important in the second half of the season when the club switched coaches. In order to continue developing, he needs to accumulate consistent playing time.
New PSG coach Unai Emery knows the 23-year-old from his tenure at Sevilla. He would be the main force asking the French giants to seal this deal.
Since Zlatan Ibrahimović left, the squad needed to add fresh blood to the attack. The #20 is a good solution, as he brings speed, good finishing, and dribbling.
Real needed to make decisions about several players and Jesé may be the first to start a domino effect. More departures from the Bernabéu could be on the way.
