Celta Vigo talk with PSG forward Jese Rodriguez

Celta Vigo are in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over the transfer of forward Jese Rodriguez, according to a report in Marca.

Jese spent the second half of last season on loan at Real Betis but they decided not to make the move permanent – reportedly due to the player’s annual wage bill of €3m.

The former Real Madrid player joined Los Verdiblancos on a long deal until the end of the season in January but netted just two goals in 18 appearances for the club.

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.

However, despite holding a reported €9m option to sign him permanently, Betis held little interest in a deal and now Celta are a possible destination for the player.

The report believes that Jese is now an alternative option for the Galician club in relation to landing midfielder Rafinha Alcantara on loan from Barcelona.
