For years, Real Madrid has displayed the class of their academy and the unwillingness to develop it as they have opted to buy instead.
Jesé Rodriguez was one of those rare players that were destined for success in the Real Madrid first team after coming through the youth system.
His brilliant pace, technical ability, and goals left me wanting more.
Unfortunately, destiny had another plan.
After becoming an integral part of the Ancelotti era at the Bernabeu, Jesé was plagued with an ACL tear which prompted a lengthy recovery.
In that time, Gareth Bale was injured and made his return about 6 times and scored the game-winning goal in the Champions League in 2014.
Jesé was just about forgotten.
The change of the guard and the appointment of Zinedine Zidane pushed the Spaniard further down the pecking order and somehow, Lucas Vasquez became an option instead of Jesé.
He was so distraught about the lack of playing time that he decided to become a rapper, like every other no-talent bastard that we all graduated with from high school.
The homie was in a dark place until that vampire named Unai Emery stepped in and brought him to P$G for the bargain of €25 million.
Jesé will never be a star, but he’s a gifted footballer that is consistent and will bring that offensive spark in a time of need.

He’ll fit well into an exciting Emery system in the French capital, which will hopefully make us all forget about his attempted rap career and put him back in the Spanish national team fray.
