Jese Rodriguez’s agent has said that there is no chance that his client will be leaving Los Blancos this summer.
After impressing last season for the Champions League winners, the 21-year-old, a product of Real Madrid’s youth academy, has gained plenty of admirers around Europe.
Despite the arrival of Gareth Bale in the summer of 2013, Jese was able to force his way into the starting XI with some superb diplays when Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale were out injured.
The winger scored five goals in 18 appearances but his season was cut short in March this year when he suffered a tear in his cruciate ligament, keeping him out of action until November.
Hi agent, Gines Carvajal, has said that his client is recovering well from his injury but will not be leaving the Bernabeu anytime soon, not even on loan.
Carvajal told Bernabeu Digital: "The recovery is proceeding on schedule, he should return to the field in November."
“It is impossible that Real Madrid will send him on loan.”
Since his injury, Bale and Ronaldo returned to help Madrid win 'La Decima', pushing Jese further down the pecking order in the process. He only signed a four-year-deal at the club last summer, but if he were to continue playing second fiddle to Bale, he may start looking elsewhere for more game time.
He is considered by many a future star of the Spanish national team and with the reigning world champions about to embark on a huge rebuilding process after their early elimination from the World Cup, Jese's stock could rise substantially.
For now he is staying put, but for how long?
