Manchester City made Rodri their record signing on Thursday and the Spanish midfielder insisted joining the club was an easy decision.
Rodri would become City's record signing with his fee eclipsing the £60million City paid Leicester for Algeria worldwide Riyad Mahrez last summer. City don't just play pretty football, they can hurt you in the final third and score goals. "I am excited to start and show what I can do".

Adams scored 38 times in 123 appearances during his three-year stay at St Andrew's after joining from Sheffield United in 2016. In addition, 21-year-old British midfielder Kyle Scott left Premier League team following the expiration of his contract.
Rodri watched Pep Guardiola turn Sergio Busquets into one of the world's greatest defensive midfielders and is now hoping the Manchester City manager can do the same for him.
Rodri should become a starter right away for The Citizens, and his arrival could trigger several other moves as now players such as Fernandinho and Ilkay Gundogan might end up leaving City after all. A lack of consistency frustrated Mark Hughes and quickly persuaded Roberto Mancini to move Robinho on, but his signing will forever be synonymous with City's horizons changing beyond all recognition.
"He works hard defensively, makes himself available to receive the ball and uses it well when in possession".
The Spaniard joined Atletico in May 2018 after spending three years at Villarreal.
"I like this football so I like watching City games and learn".
