Jesé Rodríguez is one of those Paris Saint-Germain players that I often forget is still under contract with the club. That’s what happens when you go on four consecutive loans and fail to impress at any of them.
The Spaniard joined Paris Saint-Germain from Real Madrid in 2016 for €25 million, a fee that pains me to even type it’s so ridiculous. His loan spells since joining PSG have taken Jesé from Las Palmas to Stoke City to Real Betis and to Sporting CP where he currently finds himself and according to Sport, the club has seen enough of the 26-year-old and would like to return him during the upcoming January transfer window.
Jesé has only made three Liga NOS appearances and has scored zero goals and recorded zero assists since arriving on transfer deadline day. Sporting manager Jorge Silas arrived at the club after Jesé had already joined so it’s understandable that the former Madrid man wouldn’t be in the manager’s plans and he hasn’t really done much to convince him either.
Unfortunately for Sporting, Jesé, who was not happy about being subbed off in the 60th minute against Clube Desportivo das Aves recently, will not be returning to PSG this January according to a new report from A Bola. They report that a conversation between the player and manager appears to have calmed things down and for now, things are settled.
Sporting have a €2 million option to buy, but they are not planning to take up their option.
If he returns to PSG in January, he won't be able to leave on loan again as FIFA regulations prevent players from playing for three different teams in a season.https://t.co/Vs9oidFT9I

It remains to be seen if Sporting will pick up the €2 million option to buy per Sport, but it’s not likely unless Jesé can revive his career and turn things around drastically. His contract with PSG runs out in 2021 so this will be something the club will once again have to address next summer.
