A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, The Daily Star mentioned that Manchester City midfielder Rodri is set to be offered a new contract. It has been mentioned that the Mancunian outfit are planning to offer the Spanish talent a bumper new deal and secure his long-term future in the process.

Rodri’s Impressive Run Of Form In English Football

Rodri has enjoyed another outstanding season at the Etihad Stadium as he has produced a series of dominant displays at the centre of the park. The 25-year-old has featured in 33 matches for Man City during this campaign, scoring three goals and picking up one assist in all competitions.

The Spain international has been a consistent performer at the heart of Pep Guardiola’s midfield based on his average of 2.3 tackles, 0.8 interceptions, 1.3 clearances, 1.1 shots, 1.0 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball from midfield, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 91.4% in the top tier of English football (stats via whoscored).

Rodri Set To Be Offered A New Contract: Good Move For Both Parties?

Rodri is a tough-tackling midfielder who can read the danger quickly to earn possession back for his team at the centre of the park. He usually clears the danger when needed and can retain possession well for his side. The Spaniard has also chipped in by scoring a few important goals in the final third.

Rodri is currently one of the first names on Pep Guardiola‘s teamsheet because of his remarkable consistency every week. Thus, it makes a lot of sense for Man City to tie him down to a new, lucrative contract so that they can properly reward him for his excellent service over the past 18 months.

The Spanish midfield ace can also benefit from getting his long-term future sorted so that he can solely concentrate on winning matches on the field. All in all, it is only logical for Guardiola to offer Rodri a new contract as it will be a good move for both the player and the Mancunian club as they look to collectively bring even more success back to the Etihad Stadium.
