Spain international Rodri has become Manchester City's second summer signing after completing his move from Atletico Madrid.

The 23-year-old midfielder has signed a five-year deal, the Premier League club announced.

Rodri officially became a City player on Thursday, the day after the LaLiga outfit revealed the 70million euros - around £62.8million - release clause in his contract, which had four years to run, had been triggered.

“What City have achieved in the last two years has been amazing and I’m looking forward to being part of such a talented squad.

“It’s not just the titles they have won, but the way they have managed it, playing attacking football at all times.

“It’s a style that excites me, as do the Club’s ambitions.

“I can’t wait to start working with Pep Guardiola and my new team-mates and hopefully we can achieve great things together.
