Although he hasn't been included in Real Madrid's match squad for the match against Celta Vigo, the midweek return of Jese Rodriguez has pleased just about everyone connected with the club.
Almost a year ago the youngster was being spoken about as a potential squad member of Spain's World Cup squad until injury dealt him a cruel blow.
Real Madrid too would be denied the services of a player that had already become a darling of the Santiago Bernabeu terraces in a relatively short space of time.
It's easy to understand why Jese had become so popular with fans and team-mates alike of course.
A hardworking, intelligent and physical striker, Jese has the ability to play right across the Madrid front line.
His style is dynamic, explosive and easy on the eye. Crowd-pleasing certainly.
Manna from heaven for Carlo Ancelotti should he feel the need to rotate any one of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema or Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ancelotti's rotation dilemma
However, one question that needs to be considered is exactly when the Italian will look to reintegrate Jese back into the side?
With 70 goals scored in the last 17 matches, there is a very healthy argument that the front three don't actually need to be rotated at all.
Certainly Jese would not look out of place once he has regained something like his full fitness, but in a team that is taking all before them, you're hardly likely to find any first-teamer willing to give up their starting spot without a fight.
Just how young Jese will react to fleeting substitute appearances is a moot point at this stage, although making up for lost time is likely to be foremost in his mind.
Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez is also waiting in the wings for his chance to shine, and is much further forward in terms of fitness and development within the team framework.
Jese therefore has to take a much broader and more mature view on just how quickly he can reclaim a regular starting berth.
Loan move best?
Given the form of the "BBC", you'd have to argue that it won't be anytime soon.
Would such a situation precipitate a January loan move elsewhere, perhaps to the Premier League?
Entirely possible as this would allow the youngster to regain confidence and fitness, and to give his knee the most rigorous assessment.
With five months of full-time action under his belt, Jese would then arrive back at Los Blancos in time for pre-season training and with a clean bill of health.
It could be the win-win that Ancelotti is looking for.
