- We pick the 4 most expensive transfers of the Premier League this summer.
#3 Rodrigo (Midfielder)
From: Atletico Madrid
To: Manchester City
Reported Transfer fee: £62.8 million
Manchester City have transformed into one of the most feared footballing sides in Europe under Pep Guardiola. Despite winning the domestic treble last season, the club have been relentless in its pursuit for greatness and have once again entered the transfer market to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season. The Citizens have been looking for a long-term replacement to the ageing Fernandinho and once again broke their club transfer record this summer to sign Rodrigo from Atletico Madrid for a reported fee of £62.8 million.
The 23-year-old midfielder draws comparisons to Sergio Busquets due to his incredible passing statistics and his ability to read the game. Defensive midfield is an incredibly key position, especially for a team like Manchester City who loves to attack. And Rodrigo seems to be the perfect player for the position due to his incredible energy and vision.Published 09 Aug 2019, 11:27 IST
