Real Madrid C. F. and Paris Saint-Germain have agreed the transfer of Jesé Rodríguez. The club would like to thank him for his years of dedication and professionalism from the academy through to the first team and we would like to wish him luck in the new stage of his career.

The club posted a lovely article listing his history with the club here but it is not that long so I've copied it into the post too.

14 years of age Jesé Rodríguez arrived at the Real Madrid academy from AD Huracán in Gran Canaria. It was the 2007/08 season and four years later, after standing out in the academy, he made his debut for the first team. It was 13 December 2011 in a Copa del Rey game against Ponferradina, which ended in a 2-0 win for the Whites. Months before, the player from the Canary Islands had taken part in the pre-season tour with the first team.

His speed, power and goal scoring instinct saw him become a regular in the first team squad during the 2013/14 season, where he showed his ability to beat a man and his confidence when up against the opposition defence. He showed his goal scoring ability during the previous season with Real Madrid Castilla, where he beat a mythical madridista record set by Butragueño, scoring 22 goals in Segunda División.

He opened his scoring account for the first team in the Camp Nou in 2013, in what was his highest scoring season with 8 goals. Jesé leaves for PSG after three seasons in the squad where he played 94 games and scored 18 goals. During that time he won 2 Champions Leagues, 1 Club World Cup, 1 European Super Cup and 1 Copa del Rey.

You can watch it unfold here on Real Madrid TV Live.

As of this writing, we're still waiting for the team to arrive.

Firstly, Castilla are the Segunda B Group 2 Champions!!! They have registered the most points and scored the most goals in the category. Initially coached by Zinedine Zidane at the start of the season, Luis Miguel Ramis then took over the job halfway through. As champions, they have qualified for promotional playoffs and will be facing UCAM Murcia for the chance to be automatically promoted to the Segunda Division. VAMOS, CHICOS!

Up next in Canterano Pride, the provisional Spain squad has been announced by Del Bosque and we'll see some familiar faces. We have Ramos, Carvajal, Isco and Vazquez representing our club in the squad. Most notable is our canterano, Lucas Vazquez who has never been called up to represent Spain before and now has the chance of a lifetime to put on the red shirt. (He's not really wearing it in the photo, it was clearly 'shopped lol.)

it is going to the wire

Levante beat Atletico and as a result our cross city rivals are out of the title race.

It will come down to the last game and between us and Barcelona. The title will be decided next Saturday the 14th of May

Barcelona will face Grenada while we will face Deportivo.

On paper it is clear that we have the more difficult fixture. Where teams are in the table matters little when Deportivo comes into the mix as history proves they are always a tough and unpredictable opponent. It is a straight shoot out, without doubt. We remain a single point behind. Nothing less than a win for us will do given our head to head and goal difference with Barca.

The question is, do you think we can do it? Do you think Granada can do it? They only just got to safety today. Will that push them on or hold them back?

Do you think Zidane's job is safe with at least a final show down for la liga and a champions league final after where he came in? Or is his job under threat? Would you keep him?

Zizou has spoken the press ahead of our match ahead Villareal. I must say our next few matches look good for us. A few tokens from the bald boss man.

We are capable of winning both titles and closer every day, but that doesn't mean anything. We have to work hard and fight until the last game and the last minute. We are going to work hard, it's the only thing that I can guarantee. This is how we're thinking: only about the next game. Tomorrow it's Villareal, after that Rayo.

Undoubtedly this is realistic. Every game must be taken seriously and nothing is won yet. The important thing is we have turned this table around since January by minding our own business and getting the job done. We have lost to Atleti and won against Barca but Zizou is quick to get to the important stuff.

learnt as a player is that when you lose everyone thinks that things are not going well. Although at the time I said it was lost, I knew that there was a chance of winning it. Even if you are first, you don't know if you are going to win the league”.

We have worked hard to stay in the race but it is Barca's losses that has put us in this position. We now need to take advantage of them and surely beware the fact that Barca now gets precious days off thanks to their loss in the Champions League. Or does that favour us with momentum? I'm sure many of you remember us being booted in the round of 16 for years and still managing to lose the title.

So how do you feel the team are playing?
What DO you think has caused Barca issues (their team seems healthy?)
Do you believe the rumors that Zizou's job is on the line during every match?
How do you feel about drawing City?

More importantly, we're now only a single point behind. do you think we can do it?
