Quadruple? Isn't that what Fernando's nickname was?

Manchester City are prepared to activate Rodri's 60 million euro (£53.5m) release clause - but what can the Premier League champions expect from the Atletico Madrid midfielder if he moves to the Etihad?

Sky Sports News understands City are poised to trigger Rodri's buy-out clause along with Bayern Munich after he informed Atletico of his desire to leave the club.

Rodri, who joined Atleti from Villarreal for £21.5m last summer, has been on City's radar for the past couple of transfer windows as they track down a long-term replacement for Fernandinho.

Spanish football expert Terry Gibson featured on the latest episode of the Transfer Talk podcast to give an insight into a player that has the English and German champions vying for his signature.

In the mould of Busquets

Remarkably, Rodri was released by his current club Atletico Madrid in 2013 due a to reported lack of physical strength.

Undeterred, though, he bounced back from the setback, bursting onto the scene at Villarreal in late-2015, making his senior debut against Huesca in the Copa del Rey.

His first three senior appearances were in that competition, but it wasn't long before he was exposed to La Liga, his debut against Rayo Vallecano in April 2016 leaving a lasting impression on Gibson.

"It took just 20 minutes into his debut at Villarreal to convince me that he was the real deal," Gibson said.

"His first touch, movement and anticipation in defensive situations was clear - he looked like a young Sergio Busquets immediately.

"Why a Premier League club didn't snap him up [when his release clause was] 20 million euros, I'll never know."

Slotted straight in under Simeone

After three seasons at Villarreal, Rodri returned to the club who released him three years earlier when Atletico Madrid triggered his 20 million euro (£17.8m) release clause last summer.

He arrived at the Wanda Metropolitano with one international cap under his belt and would go on to add another five in an impressive breakthrough season for both his new club and his country.

Gibson added: "It's never easy for new players to settle, so many new signings have fallen by the wayside at Atleti, but he's convinced Diego Simeone that he is the right player for him and been a constant since day one.

"Now we're talking about his 60 million euro buy-out clause being triggered, a fee that is particularly low for a player of his quality and one every big club in Europe would pay if he wants to leave."

Fernandinho replacement?

With Fernandinho recently turning 34, the need to initially source cover as well as a long-term replacement for the Brazilian is as pressing as ever for City.

For Gibson, Rodri has all the attributes City are looking for, but he explains how his move to the Wanda Metropolitano allayed any lingering doubts among would-be suitors.

"It's going to be difficult to replace Fernandinho, but if you look around Europe, he's one of the obvious contenders," he added.

"As a general rule, Premier League clubs have more money than their counterparts in Europe and are prepared to wait that little bit longer to be 100 per cent convinced.

"If it took a move to Atletico Madrid to convince Manchester City, Manchester United and every big club in Europe then it's understandable that a year later there is interest."

With all the scouts we have and all the forward planning we do, its a wonder we didn’t sign him last year for half the price.

Cant say i know much about him but he’s highly rated and plays a position we need so im happy.
derby day the scores were level,
then the goat was fed by neville,
silly boy should know for sure,
feed the goat and he will score!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The best ting I've heard about this guy is he is incredibly modest and intelligent with a degree in business studies. (Think Pogba and then the opposite)

Pep likes people to be part of a team. That is his model for success.

You can see it at the Etihad every game by the way the players celebrate each others goals

None of that nauseating turning round and pointing their numbers on the back.
