Real Betis will not make the loan deal for Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez permanent, according to El Mundo Deportivo.
The report claims the player’s below-par performances and wage packet – which is said to stand at an annual figure of €3m – as the main factors behind the decision.
The former Real Madrid player joined Los Verdiblancos on a long deal until the end of the season in January but has netted just one goal in 15 appearances to date for the club.
Recent performances against Alaves, Barcelona and Sevilla were of a particularly concerning level for the club, continues the report.
The 25-year-old’s career has badly stalled since joining the Parisian club in 2016 from Madrid, as he barely played before loan spells at Las Palmas and Stoke City.
Jese was reported to be under instruction not to give any media interviews and to focus solely on his football and was said to have been open to a permanent move to the club this summer.
However, despite holding a eporting €9m option to sign him permanently, Betis have little interest in a deal.
Last month, Betis signed Giovani Lo Celso from PSG in a permanent deal.
