Barcelona looking to sign Manchester City midfielder Rodri

Barcelona are looking to sign Manchester City midfielder Rodri as a replacement for Sergio Busquets.

Busquets’s contract at Barcelona is expiring at the end of the season. A report from Fichajes claims that Busquets could be moving to the MLS next summer.

At 34 years old, Busquets is reaching the latter stages of his career, so Barcelona will need to find a long-term replacement for the midfielder.

Now, the report from Fichajes says that Barcelona are considering both Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich and Manchester City midfielder Rodri.

Kimmich would also be an unrealistic target due to being a key player for Bayern Munich, so Barcelona may need to look elsewhere for their Busquets replacement.
