Real rule out Jese departure

Real Madrid have no intention of allowing promising winger Jese

Rodriguez to leave the club this summer.

The 20-year-old is a product of the famed academy system at

Santiago Bernabeu and has caught the eye for Real’s ‘B’ side.

He has figured in the senior set-up, but faces intense

competition for places in creative berths.

Jese himself has admitted in the recent past that he was unsure

what the future held for him in the Spanish capital, as speculation

linked him with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Real are, however, reluctant to see players of potential slip

through their grasp.

Jese has just one year remaining on his current contract but,

after starring at the U20 World Cup for Spain, will be given every

opportunity to prove he is deserving of an extension in

2013/14.

Real’s technical director Miguel Pardez said: “Jese will be

staying with us.

“He forms part of a brilliant generation and has already shown

what he can do with Castilla.”

Club president Florentino Perez said earlier in the week: “I

have a feeling that (Zinedine) Zidane wants him to stay with

us.”
