And he admitted he is now ready to battle for a place in the Real Madrid first team.

In an interview with Madrid-based daily Marca, Jese said he enjoys being likened to Cristiano Ronaldo – who he admits is an inspiration and idol to him.

“I have liked a lot of players; the Brazilian Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, but my favourite is Cristiano Ronaldo. I like being compared to him,” he stated.

On his future at the club, he added: “The club president is happy with me. I hope to reach an agreement and stay at the club. I really want to play in the first-team.”
