Jese Rodriguez is a drain on the club’s resources and it appears that PSG are finding it really hard to sell him to another club.

Jese Rodriguez had a decent loan spell at Real Betis last season while on loan from PSG.

The Spaniard was signed from Real Madrid for €25 million back in 2016 but turned out to be a failure. And it appears that his €400,000 a week wages are also becoming a worrying thing for the Ligue 1 giants.

Indeed such outlay for a player who hasn’t impressed in France is questionable. Jese Rodriguez spent only six months in the capital and has been on loan at the likes of Las Palmas, Stoke City, Real Betis and Seville.

Now back at his parent club, Jese Rodriguez has been training hard but it is clear that he will eventually be loaned out to another club. While Real Betis were keen signing him, the Spaniard rejected a permanent move to the club because they could only offer him €2 million a year.

And according to Mundo Deportivo, the move to Betis is not happening. The Andalusian outfit doesn’t have the finances to pay the sort of wages the player is demanding. Even though PSG are willing to ask only €5 million for the player, it is clear that Jese Rodriguez is going to have a hard time finding a club.

With his wages being astronomical to say the least, the former Real Madrid man cannot seal a permanent move to a mid-table club. And it is clear that his performances over the last few years would not force the bigger clubs into paying so much for him.

Under contract at Parc des Princes until 2021, it appears that Jese Rodriguez has no problems winding down his contract for the next three seasons before making a move where he will not be earning €400,000 a month.
