Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodri only has eyes for Manchester City and will snub interest from Bayern Munich to join the champions.

The 22-year-old has been a top summer target for Pep Guardiola and it is looking increasingly likely he will make the move to the Etihad sooner rather than later.

The defensive midfielder, who made 47 appearances for Diego Simeone’s side in all competitions last term, is seen as the ideal long-term replacement for Fernandinho by Guardiola and a deal should be agreed between all parties.

Bayern have also been linked with a swoop for the Spain international, who has a £62.
