Jesé Rodríguez arrived at Coritiba in September as a stellar addition, but just over two months later and after relegation, the club terminated his contract. His next destination would be Las Palmas, which is eighth in LaLiga, close to the Europa League qualification zone.

Several teams are interested in the forward, former Real Madrid and PSG, although the most advanced option is Las Palmas, a team for which he has already played in two stages, reported the newspaper Marca. The signing aims to improve the goal quota for the second round of the Spanish championship, despite the fact that the 30-year-old footballer scored only one goal in the six games he played with Coritiba.

Jesé Rodríguez was released early “in line with the objective of advancing the planning of the 2024 season,” the club announced in a brief statement. The decision also affected the Greek Andreas Samaris, another high-flying addition, in addition to the footballers Henrique, Gabriel Boschilia and Lucas Barbosa.

“I don’t plan to return to Las Palmas,” said Jesé Rodríguez six months ago

“I’m not thinking now about returning to Las Palmas; I wish you the best and hope you rise. They deserve to go up. May they achieve their goal and manage to return to the First Division,” commented the Spaniard six months ago, when that team was in the second division. His choice was to go to Sampdoria in Italy, a club with which he also lost the category in the middle of the year.

At that moment, the forward expressed some disagreement with Francisco Javier García Pimienta, the coach responsible for the promotion and good moment of the Canary Islands team. But apparently those short circuits are behind us.
