Paris Saint-Germain are after Real Madrid's Jese Rodriguez, with reports in Spain claiming the Spanish forward is "very close" to move to the Ligue 1 billionaires. Arsenal and Liverpool have been linked with the 23-year-old wantaway in recent days but Onda Cero is now reporting Paris is his "most likely" destination.

The Real Madrid academy product has been tipped to leave the Santiago Bernabeu after the club opted to activate a buy-back clause to bring Alvaro Morata back to Zinedine Zidane's side.

Los Blancos are said to have faith in the future of the versatile forward, but want him to secure playing time somewhere else, as his playing time could be limited due to the presence of Morata, Lucas Vazquez and the unmovable BBC trio formed by Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

This way the Champions League winners are reportedly considering sending him on loan or selling him with a buy-back option that lets them to keep the control of his future.

Espanyol revealed earlier in the summer that they wanted him on loan, while The Sun recently reported that Arsenal and Liverpool were also considering taking advantage of the situation to bring him to the Premier League.

However, reports in Spain are now claiming the versatile forward's "most likely" destination is PSG.

Marca claims that manager Unai Emery unsuccessfully tried to secure his services during his time at Sevilla and has now demanded the Parisians lure him to his new club.


Onda Cero went a step further and reported that the player is "very close" to move to the Ligue 1 side after the clubs advanced negotiations during their pre-season friendly on Thursday 28 July.


Yet, only hours before the game, Jese's agent Gines Carvajal was spotted in conversation with Real Madrid chief Jose Angel Sanchez. Onda Cero believes that the trip of the representative to America prior to the encounter with PSG was not a coincidence but a clear intention to accelerate his transfer to the Ligue 1 side.

Furthermore, the Spanish radio station claims the player is unlikely to renew his contract with Real Madrid despite it set to expire at the end of the coming season. This way, instead of a loan, Los Blancos will need to cash-in with him on a permanent basis, but keeping a buy-back option to lure him back to the Bernabeu should he break into a major star, as they did with Morata.
