Manchester City star Rodri has seemingly ruled out the possibility of heading to Saudi Arabia, despite admitting a transfer is not off the cards at some point.

The midfielder has been speaking El Partidazo de COPE about his career and where it may take him in the coming years.

The Spaniard is currently classed as one of the best, or even the best midfielder in the world after establishing himself as a key player under Pep Guardiola since his arrival in 2019.

Last year was arguably the best so far as he was one of the undisputed stars of the side that won the treble, with his goal in the Champions League final sealing that particular trophy.

His influence on Manchester City is undisputed, as has been recently seen during his absence from the side due to suspension.

Rodri’s performances have not gone unnoticed and that naturally means there could be interest from others in the years to come.

A return to Spain would certainly be unsurprising, particularly if the likes of Real Madrid come calling, while there is also the growing threat of Saudi Arabia and their efforts to scoop up the best players around the world.

It seems Rodri isn’t tempted by that, though, particularly while he continues to win things with Manchester City.

“I have to tell you that I am a person who tries to enjoy the moment. I don’t look around,” he said.

“I didn’t have the idea or imagine that I could play in the Premier League and then once you get here, well, the truth is that everything has been very positive. It is an experience that I am living very intensely.

“Spain is my country, my political culture, where I was born. Obviously, we’ll see because, I’ve already said it, football is very changeable. I am a player who moves around a lot.

“What attracts me most is the sporting aspect; I want to win and that’s what I’ve always been working for. Obviously, that’s why I came here. At the moment I’m very happy, we’ll see later.

“I think it’s very complicated (Saudi Arabia). It would be very complicated to join a project like Arabia because, as I told you, my priority in football is ambition, it is sporting ambition, individual ambition, collective ambition and at the moment Arabia is not there.”
