Spain midfielder Rodri completes Manchester City move

Spain international Rodri has become Manchester City’s second summer signing after completing his move from Atletico Madrid.

The 23-year-old midfielder has signed a five-year deal, the Premier League club announced.

Rodri officially became a City player on Thursday, the day after the LaLiga outfit revealed the 70million euros – around £62.8million – release clause in his contract, which had four years to run, had been triggered.

A statement on the reigning champions’ official website said: “Manchester City are delighted to announce the signing of Spanish midfielder Rodri.

“The 23-year-old joins on a five-year deal from Atletico Madrid and follows Angelino to become Pep Guardiola’s second signing of the summer.”
