Jesé arrived at the Real Madrid youth academy at the age of 14 and is currently one of the greatest talents in Spanish football. He is from Gran Canaria and always wanted to play for the Whites. Six years after his arrival, he is now a member of the first team and is starting to show that he is a top class footballer. Speed, creativity, power and intensity are the main features of this rough diamond.
He has earned his place among the stars of Real Madrid thanks to his wonderful performances for Real Madrid Castilla last season. He broke the goal-scoring record of a Madrid legend and his own personal hero, Emilio Butragueño, by scoring 22 goals in the Second Division in a single season.
His ability to go past opponents and his determination to do so are a major problem for opposition defenders and the club scouts noticed this straight away. In 2011 he went on the pre-season tour of the USA with the first team and he made his debut for Real Madrid in a King’s Cup qualifying round against Ponferradina. His role model is Cristiano Ronaldo and this means that Jesé’s objective is clear: to be the best player in the world.
