Manchester City are set to hand star midfielder Rodri a new deal that will see the Spain international’s salaries rise massively after an impressive season.
According to the Daily Starthe 25-year-old faces a deal worth £125,000 a week, a rise of over 60% from Rodri’s current £70,000-a-week wage as Pep Guardiola’s side continue to reward those who have done well during the campaign.
According to the report, City have been on a warpath in recent months to tie key players to new deals to secure their long-term future, with Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Ruben Dias just a handful of names to have signed new deals this season .
And City don’t plan to stop at Rodri as Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan are also set to sign new deals at the club. However, according to the report, Raheem Sterling is unlikely to join Rodri and Co in signing new deals with the reigning Premier League champions.
Indeed, the signing of a new deal with Rodri is huge for City’s future as the 25-year-old is one of the club’s best players this season and even Manchester United legend Gary Neville is a big fan of the Spaniard .
The Sky Sports pundit hailed the midfielder as “outstanding” following Rodri’s performance against Liverpool earlier in the season and now it looks like City are set to reward the former Atletico Madrid maestro with a huge pay rise.
City will be delighted with Rodri’s eagerness to sign a new contract
Rodri, who has been a ubiquitous presence in City’s XI this season, has been key to the Manchester giants’ success in recent years and the signing of a new deal is significant for the club’s long-term future.
After all, Rodri is one of the best deep midfielders in the Premier League and deserves a raise after another great season with City and keeping him long-term is a great result for Guardiola’s side.
