Manchester City wrapped up a superb domestic treble this weekend with a stunning 6-0 win over Watford in the FA Cup final.
Pep Guardiola’s men have been brilliant throughout the campaign and thoroughly deserve their three big trophies, and the challenge now for the Spaniard is to try and ensure he can keep the hunger in his squad and keep on winning the biggest prizes.
The departure of Vincent Kompany this weekend is one of the first signs of the City squad beginning to break apart, and the likes of David Silva, Fernandinho, and Sergio Aguero are players who might well be in the next group of City regulars to move away from the club.
That’s why we think that the club being linked with a move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodri makes perfect sense, with the Spaniard rumoured to be the subject of a £65m bid from the Manchester giants.
City have got to move soon to replace some of their top stars in the middle of the park, especially in the form of Silva and Fernandinho, who are now both into their 30s and will need some of the pressure taking off them in the coming seasons.
Rodri has everything about him to become the next Silva for the Cityzens, and with the right coaching under Guardiola and his skilled coaching team, he could have a huge impact on proceedings at the Etihad.
The 22-year-old has the potential within him to get even better, building on what has already been a successful careeer so far in La Liga in spells with Villareal and Atletico.
Guardiola will need to act and act soon, and he won’t be afraid to bring in new faces as he seeks to keep the successful times going at City.
