Man City remain in hunt for Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodrigo

Manchester City remain in the hunt for Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodrigo.

The former Villarreal ace has emerged as a top summer target for City, which have intimated a willingness to meet his €70m buyout clause.

City see Rodri as a long-term successor for veteran midfielder Fernandinho.

Despite only being with Atletico 12 months, the Spain international is tempted by City's interest.

Indeed, he and his minders believe this summer could be his one big chance to earn a move to a club the size of the Premier League champs.
