Manchester City boss Pep Josep Guardiola recognized the desire of City tying down Rodri to a new contract off the back of an impressive season, according to the current report from Fabrizio Romano.
With Rodri managing to fill the void left in the central midfield by the departure of the champions captain Fernandinho, there have been several murmurs about City’s plans to offer the Spaniard a new deal with improved terms.
Despite three years remaining on his current contract at Etihad, the Premier League champions are looking to secure the long-term future of one of the most strong and agile player in Pep Guardiola’s side.
The former Atletico Madrid man, who joined Manchester City for a reported £62.8 million fee in 2019, has established himself as a first-team regular player and scored a string of crucial goals in his side’s Premier League run-in last term.
His deeds must have been the major objective why Pep Guardiola is said to have given the green light for officials at the Etihad Stadium to reward Rodrigo Hernandez with contract extension.
