Manchester City today confirmed the signing of midfielder Rodri from Atletico Madrid.The English Premier League champions have paid Rodri’s £62.8 million release clause to sign him.

 

The 23-year-old becomes Man City’s second signing of the week following the return of Angelino. He also becomes City's record signing, surpassing the £60m they paid to sign Riyad Mahrez last summer. Atletico Madrid confirmed that Rodri’s lawyers and City representatives paid the release clause to La Liga on Wednesday.

 

The Spaniard joined Atletico in May 2018 after spending three years at Villarreal. He played a crucial part in their second-placed finish in La Liga, making 34 league appearances.
