PSG have confirmed the decision to rescind Jesé Rodríguez’s contract at the club by mutual consent.
The Spanish forward played a total of just 22 minutes this season and wasn’t part of head coach Thomas Tuchel’s future plans. The former Real Madrid player’s contract was due to expire on June 30, 2021.
“Paris Saint-Germain and Jesé have agreed to terminate the player’s contract, due to expire on 30 June 2021. The 27-year-old from Las Palmas in the Canary Islands arrived in Paris in the summer of 2016. Jesé played 18 matches in all competitions for the Rouge & Bleu, scoring two goals and winning one Ligue 1 title (2020), one Coupe de la Ligue (2017) and one Trophée des Champions (2017). Paris Saint-Germain wishes Jesé all the best for his professional career”, read a statement issued by the Ligue 1 club.
The 27-year-old had loan spells at Las Palmas, Stoke City, Real Betis and Sporting CP but failed to revive his career after a promising start at Real Madrid and for Spain at underage level. One of the reasons why PSG were eager to end Jesé’s contract was his huge salary, earning €420,000 after tax per month.
