Paris St-Germain have signed Spanish forward Jese Rodriguez from Real Madrid for an undisclosed fee on a five-year deal.
The 23-year-old joined Real at the age of 14 and was part of their Champions League-winning squads in 2014 and 2016.
He will link up with former Sevilla boss Unai Emery, who succeeded Laurent Blanc as PSG manager in June.
“It will be a great pleasure to work under the direction of Unai Emery, who has developed an excellent reputation,” Jese told the PSG website.
No word yet on the fee for the 23-year-old, who has scored 13 goals in 62 La Liga matches.
“I am delighted to join Paris St-Germain, who have become one of Europe’s most competitive clubs,” he said.
“Like Paris St-Germain, I have big ambitions for the coming seasons and it will be a great pleasure to work under the direction of Unai Emery, who has developed an excellent reputation in Spain, and across Europe, for his quality as a coach.
“I can’t wait to begin this next challenge of my career.”
