Jese’s move from Real Madrid to Paris Saint-Germain could be confirmed in the next few hours after reports of an agreement for €25m.
Claims of the transfer broke in France late on Tuesday evening but AS insists the clubs haven’t decided if it will be a loan or permanent move, with Los Blancos preferring a temporary switch and the Parisians wanting a transfer.
Madrid have to take into account a possible transfer embargo from FIFA and could be prevented from making signings in the next two transfer windows, and would then be unable to re-sign Jese if he was sold permanently.
PSG though want to make the deal permanent now and French regulations don’t allow for release clauses, a €23.5m stipulation having been mooted.
It’s noted that Jese’s original idea was to stay at Madrid but after being told by Zinedine Zidane that he wouldn’t get playing time, he agreed to look elsewhere.
Zidane discussed Jese’s situation at a Press conference prior to the pre-season friendly with Bayern Munich, and suggested he could be sold and bought back in a year.
“It’s not yet closed. There’s nothing signed but it’s on track. We’ll know more when we’re back in Madrid. I think PSG will be good for him because they’re a good team, he’ll score a lot of goals there,” Zizou noted.
“They’re an important team and hopefully it all goes well, he does well, but Madrid is his home. He’s been here all his life. Maybe he’s there a year and then he comes home.”
