Man City have edge on Bayern Munich in €70M Rodrigo battle

Manchester City face Bayern Munich competition for Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodrigo.

City boss Pep Guardiola sees the Spain international as a natural successor for Fernandinho and has urged management to move for the player. Indeed, City have shown a willingness to pay Rodrigo's €70m buyout clause to bring him to England.

However, Bayern are also keen, reports El Larguero.

Having already signed Atletico teammate Lucas Hernandez for a massive €84m, Bayern are now returning to Atleti for Rodrigo.

City, however, hope to convince Atleti to sell to them by including Nicolas Otamendi as part of the deal.
