Number one target for Manchester City this transfer window has been upgrading the center of the pitch and it looks like they will get their man. It is of course, Atletico Madrid’s, Rodri. The 22 year old has a reported release fee of 70m Euros, but City are looking to get the midfielder at a lower price.
And now Sam Lee of Goal has reported:
Update: City are big time favourites for Rodri now. My story earlier is essentially the same (i.e. it’s not done yet and still needs to be signed off) but Rodri has told City he’s joining them, so City’s chances are much greater, and Bayern’s much smaller https://t.co/EsHXS32tXg— Sam Lee (@SamLee) June 18, 2019
Rodri would be a fine get for Pep Guardiola and company. Despite strong interest from Bayern Munich it does look like City will come out on top and solidify a position of need for City.
What’s your opinion City fans? I would love this move. Let us know in the comments.
