Paris Saint-Germain have have completed the signing of Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez on a five-year deal.
The forward joins PSG for a fee believed to be €25m (£21m) and leaves Real Madrid having been at the club since 2007, starting out as a youth player, to become the French champions’ fifth signing of the summer.
The former Spain Under-21 international told PSG’s official website: “I am delighted to join Paris St Germain, who have become one of Europe’s most competitive clubs.
“Like Paris St Germain, I have big ambitions for the coming seasons and it will be a great pleasure to work under the direction of Unai Emery, who has developed an excellent reputation in Spain, and across Europe, for his quality as a coach. I can’t wait to begin this next challenge of my career.”
Jese has started just 14 games for Real Madrid, but made 49 substitutes appearances for the club and has scored 13 goals since making his debut for the senior team in August 2011.
Jese had one season remaining on his contract with the Champions League winners but the desire for more playing time appears to be the motivation for his transfer to Ligue 1.
