Jese Rodriguez on Tottenham and Malaga’s radar


Tottenham Hotspur owner Daniel Levy is looking to include Real Madrid pearl Jese Rodriguez as part of Gareth Bale’s deal, Spanish sports newspaper As claims.

The 20-year-old was already linked to Spurs one month ago, when Sky Sports stated the London club had offered 11.5 million euros to Los Blancos.

Now, according to As, Levy has told Florentino Perez he wants 100 million euros and either Jese or Alvaro Morata for Gareth Bale.

Jese is one of the most promising Spanish young players. Often compared with Cristiano Ronaldo, he has earned a spot in this season’s squad.

Madrid would not consider a sale, but they could agree to a loan in case the youngster doesn’t get all the playing time he needs to improve.

That is why former Real Madrid manager Bernd Schuster has already asked Perez the forward’s loan to Malaga for one year, according to Andalucian newspaper La Opinion de Malaga.

However, Perez, Carlo Ancelotti and Zinedine Zidane are yet to decide the destiny of Jese this season. Gareth Bale’s arrival could finally convince them to send him on loan.
