After the confirmed marches of Lucas, Godín, Juanfran and Griezmann, and the more than probable of Filipe Luis, the exit of players of the Athletic one of Madrid continues causing uncertainty in his liking and the next in leaving the club can be Rodri. According to what Cope announced on Thursday, his agent, Pablo Barquero, has already informed the red and white entity that he is going to pay the clause of 70 million euros that appears in his contract. Although everything pointed out that Manchester City was the team most interested in the midfielder, Barcelona has also been interested in the international, which sees the ideal replacement for Busquets.
Enrique Cerezo, president of the Madrid club, increased the uncertainty on Wednesday with statements on the same station in which he said that "today … today Rodrigo is an Atletico player, but tomorrow he has an offer and you want to go … ».
UEFA's investigation into Manchester City for a possible breach of the rules of Fair Play Financial can give a twist to the departure of Rodri, 22, who would now be in the orbit of Barcelona.
Last summer he signed Rodri, for which he paid 20 million euros to Villarreal. Throughout the League has played 33 games, 31 of them as a starter, and has scored two goals.
