The Middlesbrough fans in the Transfer Tavern were certainly not expecting this…
Aitor Karanka has done a stellar job at Middlesbrough, leading the side back into the Premier League whilst also very quickly establishing the side as a credible force in the English top flight.
In fact, the rise of the Boro has been remarkable – but it would appear as though the manager has even bigger plans for his impressive team.
According to Le Parisien, PSG attacker Jese could be on his way to the Premier League, with Aitor Karanka seemingly keen on the ex-Real Madrid forward.
They also note that Middlesbrough are in a position to be able to bring him in on a loan deal, with any proposed move likely lasting until the end of the season.
This report has delighted the Middlesbrough fans in the Transfer Tavern, with many shocked that the Riverside-based club would be able to land a player of Jese’s quality. Though he hasn’t done too well in Ligue 1, there is no doubting the quality that he has, and many of them are convinced that he would be a success in the Premier League.
Our landlord thinks that, should Middlesbrough get the deal done, they will have Karanka to thank. He thinks that Jese and Karanka must already have a relationship, owing to the time they both spent at Real Madrid, and he thinks that that relationship could be key to any forthcoming deal.
Middlesbrough fans – thoughts?
