Manchester City need Rodri0
Manchester City are going to lure the Atletico Madrid midfielder, Rodri. The Citizens are ready to compensate the Indians the sum for the player in the amount of compensation, which is 70 million euros.
Last summer Rodri ended up at Atletico Madrid after performance for Villarreal. Rodrigo Hernandez, as the footballer is called for real, turned up in the Yellow Submarine structure after Atletico youth school, the product of which he is. However, the halfback did not manage to play fully in his first season. The 22-year old player played in 26 matches of the Spanish La Liga and scored two goals.
Considering the player’s perspective of development, Manchester City closely followed him, which are ready to offer him a contract and pay the compensation of 70 million euros. Pep Guardiola wants to get Rodri to the Citizens’ camp, who is personally interested in the talent, as it became known from the words of the Spanish journalist, Enrique Ortego, in Radioestadio program live at Onda Cero.
Guardiola sees qualities in Rodri, which are present in Sergio Busquets from Barcelona. Manchester City need a defensive midfielder, as Fernandinho with every new season cannot play on such a high level, as before. Considering the fact that City often play by 4-3-3 formation or 4-1-4-1, the need a replacement for the Brazilian, bought from Shakhtar Donetsk.
At the same time, it will not be difficult for Rodri to join Guardiola’s team. Apart from the Spanish manager, his countryman David Silva, the former Valencia player Otamendi and Aymeric Laporte, who played at Athletic Bilbao, are also present there. Having the Spanish-speaking partners behind his back and in front of him, as well as the manager, Rodri’s adaptation will not be long.
His teammate, Saul, has become Rodri’s competitor for the transfer to Manchester City. The more experienced partner at Altetico has earned himself a reputation; however, Atletico are not going to say goodbye to the man, who passed Bayern’s whole defense in the Champions League for less than 150 million euros. Manchester United are also claiming Saul; therefore it would be more profitable for Manchester City to leave their choice on Rodri.
