PSG agree €25m fee for Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez


Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez is close to leaving the European champions for Paris Saint-Germain.

The French outfit were in talks with Los Blancos over the last few days and it is believed that an agreement has been reached.

The highly rated Spaniard’s development has stalled over the last couple of seasons due to the lack of game time and injuries and the player is looking to kick-start his stagnating career with a move away from Bernabeu.

French champions Paris Saint-Germain were looking to sign a partner for Edinson Cavani. Following the departure of Ibrahimovic, PSG have been lacking in depth upfront and were looking at the likes of Jese and Lacazette as potential additions.

New PSG manager Unai Emery has always been a fan of Jese and wanted to sign him for Sevilla as well. Emery confirmed earlier this week that Jese is an option for PSG in the market.

Marca have now confirmed that both clubs have agreed a 25 million Euros fee for the La Liga attacker and Jese will be officially announced as a PSG player soon.

The Spaniard was a target for Chelsea and Manchester United as well. The likes of Arsenal and Liverpool were linked with the player too.

Jese will be a great addition for PSG. The Spaniard was rated as one of the best young forwards in Europe before his injury under Ancelotti. With regular football, there is no reason why he cannot get back to that level again.
