Rodri has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City, tying him down to the Etihad until 2027.
Pep Guardiola’s creative playing style and his insatiable hunger for trophies constantly lures players to commit their future under his stewardship. Rodrigo Hernandez is no exception.
The Spanish international switched allegiances from Athletico Madrid in 2019 and has been nothing short of exceptional. He had a good debut season, an incredible sophomore, and a mindblowing third season.
With his contract set to expire in 2024, Rodri has penned down five more years in a deal that could double his current wage of £120k a week.
Raheem Sterling’s departure has freed up Mancity’s wage structure a little and given players like Rodri the luxury of a near 100% wage increment.
Rodrigo’s contract extension could nudge players like Riyadh Mahrez and Phil Foden towards entrusting their futures to Manchester City.
