Jesé Rodríguez's exit from Paris Saint-Germain this winter appears closer and closer to becoming a reality, with LaLiga side Las Palmas looking best-placed to add the forward to their squad.
Jesé reportedly set on Las Palmas move
This week, Spanish radio station Cadena SER claimed that Jesé, who is from the Canary Islands, has made up his mind to return to his home region in search of the regular action he has lacked at PSG under coach Unai Emery.
The chief stumbling block towards a move to Las Palmas - most likely to be a loan until the end of the season - would seem to be who pays the Real Madrid youth product's annual salary of 2.6 million euros net.
However, PSG are seemingly keen to do business over the 23-year-old, who has failed to settle since joining from Real on a 25-million-euro deal in August.
"When you make a mistake, it's better to try to correct it"
So much so that the Ligue 1 giants' president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, appeared to acknowledge the club's regret at signing the player, and leave the way clear for his departure, in an interview with Le Parisien on Friday.
Asked about Jesé's potential switch to Las Palmas, Al-Khelaifi said: "Emery said something very fair to me, which has always been my vision: 'When you make a mistake, it's better to try to correct it than to live with it.'
"So if we've made mistakes, we'll try to correct them. The door isn't closed."
