Middlesbrough might be about to make the craziest signing of the transfer window


Middlesbrough were clearly making an astute move when they appointed Aitor Karanka.

The former Real Madrid assistant manager was relatively unknown in English football prior to his arrival on Teeside.

It’s clear he’s got friends in high places, though, as he counts old boss Jose Mourinho among his personal acquaintances.

The Spaniard has already put his contacts to good use by sealing the incredible signing of Alvaro Negredo in the summer.

It’s not often you get former Manchester City and Real Madrid strikers signing for the ‘Boro, but Karanka clearly played a big role.

That doesn’t look like the end of his influence either, as he could be about to pull off a similarly shocking move.


Paris Saint-Germain are looking to sell Jese Rodriguez this month and, according to French publication L’Equipe, it could see him head to the Riverside.

While the player himself would like to move to La Liga, preferably to Las Palmas, the club can’t afford him because they’d be required to pay 20% of his wages as part of a loan agreement.

Karanka could therefore swoop in and sign him on loan until the end of the season, using his time with Jese at Madrid to seal an unlikely reunion.
