RODRI NEARLY WRAPPED UP
Another one nearly done? We’re getting spoilt here.
After months of rumours and speculation, haggling and negotiating, Manchester City are finally on the brink of completing the signing of Rodri from Atletico Madrid, having payed his €70million release clause to La Liga. Jonathan Smith first reported that the Blues were preparing to deposit the fee at around midday, with Guillermo Arango and Diario SPORT later confirming that the payment had been made. Not long after, Atleti themselves officially announced what was already common knowledge; that the Cityzens has payed the 23-year-old’s release clause, meaning that he will soon become a Manchester City player. Sam Lee of Goal believes that the club will officially unveil the midfielder tomorrow, and ESPN added that Rodri travelled to Manchester today in preparation for tomorrow’s announcement. Our largest and longest transfer saga of the summer is coming to a close. Who else can’t wait to finally see Rodri in sky blue?!
FIGHTING OVER CANCELO
One signing that is looking increasingly less likely to go through is that of Juventus’ João Cancelo. City were thought to be favourites for the right-back’s signature, but Bayern Munich have now emerged as rivals to complete the deal, as Corriere dello Sport report that the Bavarians have “accelerated” negotiations regarding the 25-year-old. City now appear to be at risk of losing out on signing the Portuguese, having attempted to include Danilo as part of a deal during talks to this point. Do you think the Blues will regret not sealing a deal for Cancelo?
