Man City sign Spanish midfielder Rodri in club record deal

Rodri joined Atletico Madrid in 2018 after three years at Villarreal and made 34 league appearances as they finished second in La Liga

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.
