Premier League champions Manchester City are ready to close their first signing of the summer, having reportedly agreed on terms with La Liga giants Atletico Madrid for their midfielder Rodri. The Spanish global has a €70m (5.45billion) buyout clause and has been linked to Premier League champions Manchester City and German leaders Bayern Munich.
Both clubs are more than willing to pay the £62.5million release clause, after the 22 year old asked for time to consider his future. Diego Simeone has convinced him that he will cover the loss of Rodri, who will leave for either Manchester City of Bayern Munich soon.

Bayern Munich, who are on a youth drive in replenishing their squad this summer, are City's main competition in trying to sign the 7-cap Spain worldwide. At €70m, it would nudge aside their previous biggest fee of €67m (£60m) paid to Leicester City for Riyad Mahrez last summer.
Bayern Munich had made a concerted play for Rodri's signature and were considered City's main rivals but Rodri is understood to have informed club president Angel Gil Marin of his preference to link up with Pep Guardiola on Monday.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
