‘Every manager’s dream’: Rodri signs a new five-year contract with Manchester City

Rodri has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City, tying him to the Etihad until 2027.

The 26-year-old had two years left on his existing contract with the Premier League champions after signing a £62.8m deal from Atletico Madrid in 2019.

Rodri was a key figure in City’s third title win in four seasons last season, impressing at the base of Pep Guardiola’s midfield.

“Joining City in 2019 is the best decision I’ve made in my career,” said the Spain international. “I loved every second. The fans have been great with me, I feel totally supported by the club and the manager pushes me every day.

“I’ve improved so much as a player and I want to thank Pep and all the backroom staff for their help. They are totally committed to helping me become the best player I can be and I appreciate their hard work.

“We’ve been very successful since I’ve been here, and that makes me very proud. But to be honest, this success has made me even hungrier for myself. Once you start winning big titles, you won’t want to stop.

“City offers me the best chance of winning trophies in my opinion and that’s why I’m so happy to stay here longer.”

Txiki Begiristain, City’s director of football, said: “Rodri has been exceptional since coming here so I’m delighted we’ve managed to agree this new deal.

“He is the perfect example of what a top professional should be: he has a fantastic attitude, lives his life the right way, takes care of his body and trains hard every day. It’s every manager’s dream and I know Pep loves working with him.

“He’s improved a lot since he came here and I think he’s one of the best in the world at his position now.”

Rodri’s extension comes amid a summer of upheaval at City, with additional competition for his place in midfield from new signing Kalvin Phillips.

Erling Haaland’s arrival at the marquee, meanwhile, coincided with the departure of Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal, while Raheem Sterling is expected to complete his £47.5million move to Chelsea immediately.
