It is official. The young canterano has hammered out an agreement to remain tied to Real Madrid for the next four years. The player won the Bronze Shoe award at this year's FIFA U-20 World Cup tallying 5 goals, which was the second highest goal output at the tournament. Had Spain not been upset early in the tournament, he most likely would have taken home the Golden Shoe.
The Spanish starlet broke Emilio Butragueño's record for most goals in a season (21) for Real Madrid Castilla a year ago with a phenomenal individual effort that bordered on being a wonder-goal against AD Alcorcón.
The player tweeted the following moments ago:
Muy feliz por renovar y jugar en el mejor equipo del mundo!!! Daré todo por este escudo saludos!!— JeseRodriguez10 (@JeseRodriguez10) July 24, 2013
It will be interesting to see Jesé's role in this new team headed by Carlo Ancelotti and Zinedine Zidane.
