Rodri holds willingness to extend Manchester City contract after Euro 2024



| Last Updated:


Manchester City’s defensive midfield star Rodri holds a willingness to extend his contract at the Etihad Stadium following the summer’s European Championships.

The Spain international midfielder has been at the very heart of Manchester City’s excellent work since first joining the club from Atletico Madrid in 2019, becoming arguably the most crucial cog in Pep Guardiola’s operation.

Emphasising his impact on the Manchester City side, Rodri is currently in the middle of a staggering 67-game unbeaten run, further extended this week after the club’s 1-1 draw against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final second-leg.

Following on from his outstanding exploits over the last three seasons in particular, Manchester City are now likely to reward Rodri with a new deal, in conversations that the player himself is seemingly willing to entertain.

That is according to the information of Manchester City insider ‘Tolmie’s Hairdoo’ on X, who reports that the defensive midfield star will ‘hear City out’ after this summer’s European Championships in Germany, with a willingness to sign a new contract extension.

It is detailed that a renewed agreement with Manchester City would effectively retain the services of the Spain international midfielder for a further five years, while there would be significant financial implications for the 27-year-old.

The report goes on to state that a new contract for Rodri at Manchester City would also make him a top earner within Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad, alongside likes of Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne.

Rodri has amassed an outstanding 249 appearances across all competitions so far for Manchester City, scoring 25 goals including the match-winning strike in last season’s UEFA Champions League final against Inter in Istanbul.

His trophy cabinet is equally as impressive, with the Spaniard averaging a new honour for Manchester City every 25 games, with 10 titles to his name including the last three Premier League trophies available to him and his teammates.

Manchester City are however likely to sign a new defensive midfielder this summer, as the club looks to bring in a capable stand-in for Rodri during times of injury, suspension, or requirement for a rest during a hectic and demanding campaign.
