Monday’s edition of AS had yet another article on Rodri’s potential move from Atletico Madrid to Manchester City.
It was claimed the Premier League champions have offered €8m a year in wages, and Atletico are prepared to match whatever is thrown at their midfielder.
Both Bayern Munich and City were said to be willing to pay the Spaniard’s €70m release clause, something which has been reported repeatedly in recent months.
Mundo Deportivo have picked up the story and they say Rodri’s decision on his future will have nothing to do with money.
They also add Manchester United and PSG as clubs ‘willing to pay’ the full €70m.
There haven’t been a great deal of links between Rodri and Old Trafford, and whilst Manchester United interest wouldn’t be the biggest surprise, it doesn’t appear to be a track they’re concentrating on right now.
Mundo Deportivo say proposals from Pep Guardiola, Niko Kovac and Thomas Tuchel ‘have a lot of weight’ because Rodri feels he’d fit well into the style.
That could be a reason for him to leave Atletico Madrid, but with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s style not yet being so defined, Manchester United would likely find it difficult to compete.
