Jesé Rodríguez will play until the end of the season with Unión Deportiva Las Palmas. The former Real Madrid striker go back to La Liga to play at home. Jesé was born in Las Palmas but he never played with the yellow t-shirt. Now he has the opportunity to shine in the island, surrounded by his people.
Jesé’s nightmare at PSG has ended. At least until now. The forward will play on loan until the end of the season to try to be fit again to play football at the highest level. Jesé will lose some money with this transfer but he thinks this is a step forward in his career to continue in his progression.
PSG paid a transfer fee of €25M in the summer for one of the best young players of Real Madrid. However, the adventure never went well and soon enough we could see some problems between Unai Emery, PSG coach, and Jesé Rodríguez. He has only played 9 games in Ligue One, scoring one goal back in November. His last game was in December in Coupe de la Ligue against Lille, where he scored another goal.
The lack of opportunities, the bad relationship with Unai and the problems with the language and the city made the adventure failed. Some Italian teams like Roma or British teams like Middlesbrough tried to sign him in the winter transfer window, but Jesé always preferred to play with Las Palmas. He owns a house in the island and the family and friends wait for him in the Canary Islands.
Real Madrid former player will have the chance to play again at Santiago Bernabéu. The 1st of March, Las Palmas will visit the Spanish capital and Jesé should be already prepared to play against his former team mates. It will be a special occasion for a player who has been raised at Real Madrid.
