Jesé’s time at Stoke City has come to an end, that’s been made all but official by the Potters themselves.
What happens now to the Paris Saint-Germain forward is a mystery, as there’s a real worry the Ligue 1 champions will be stuck with him until 2021, unable to find him a new landing spot after failed loans to bet365 Stadium and Las Palmas.
According to what former director of football Damien Comolli said a few weeks ago, ‘his value is zero’, meaning the French side’s only chance of getting rid of him is to let him leave on a free, but that’s not what they do.
Just ask Hatem Ben Arfa.
Le Parisien on Thursday explain one of the reasons why his spell at Stoke didn’t work out was his attitude, with the Potters’ dressing room describing a ‘selfish and juvenile player who never really fitted in’.
A lot of that will come down to his well publicised personal issues, which the Premier League side did everything in their power to accommodate, but the professional relationship was never reciprocated.
Currently earning €450k/month, PSG are now hoping for someone else to take a punt on him, which really shouldn’t be the case when they spent over £20m on him in the first place.
