OFFICIAL: Manchester City sign Rodri


After months of speculations, Manchester City have confirmed the arrival of Rodri from Atletico Madrid in a £63million club record deal.

The Spaniard becomes City’s second arrival of the summer, as the Blues from Manchester triggered his release clause, making him the most expensive incomer in history.

Rodri penned a five-year deal with Man City after impressing for Los Colchoneros playing in front of the back four and has been labeled as long-term replacement for Fernandinho.

“What City have achieved in the last two years has been amazing and I’m looking forward to being part of such a talented squad,” Rodri said.

“It’s not just the titles they have won, but the way they have managed it, playing attacking football at all times.

“It’s a style that excites me, as do the Club’s ambitions.

“I can’t wait to start working with Pep Guardiola and my new team-mates and hopefully we can achieve great things together.”

Txiki Begiristain, City’s Director of Football added: “Rodri has proven himself to be a hugely talented, young midfielder, who has all the attributes we are looking for.

“He works hard defensively, makes himself available to receive the ball and uses it well when in possession.

“He is a perfect fit for Pep Guardiola’s team and we are confident he will be a success.”

The capture of Rodri brings City’s long and troubled search for a defensive midfielder to an end.
