Young Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez says he will make a decision on his future at the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the under-20 World Cup, where he is representing Spain.

The 20-year-old scored 22 goals in the Spanish Segunda Division for Real Madrid's Castilla side last season, and he has been linked with a move away from the club before the transfer deadline.

Jese admits he is still unclear what the future holds for him as a Real Madrid player, and has hinted he may be prepared to leave the club in the pursuit of regular first team football.

"I don't know what the club wants with me. I assume they will want to offer me a renewal, but I don't know what I will do. I am not going to lie about it," he told Marca.

"I am calm about my future. I've had a good season and I'm doing well at the World Cup now. I'm relaxed. 

"Once the World Cup is over, we'll open talks to discuss my future."

Jese's performances for Real Madrid's Castilla side have led to comparisons to first-team superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has himself been linked with a transfer away from the club before the end of the summer.

Ronaldo is a reported target for new Manchester United manager David Moyes, with Sir Alex Ferguson's successor hopeful of bringing the 28-year-old back to Old Trafford.
