Premier League champions Manchester City completed the signing on Thursday of Spanish international midfielder Rodri on a five-year record transfer from Atletico Madrid.
Atletico had earlier announced that City had paid a 70 million euro buyout clause for the 23-year-old. City confirmed on their website that Rodri was a record signing for the club.
The deal eclipsed the £60 million they paid Leicester City for Algerian international Riyad Mahrez in July last year.
Rodri follows Angelino, the Spanish left-back who joined from PSV Eindhoven, as manager Pep Guardiola’s second signing of the summer.
