Three-time European champions Manchester United will have to fend off a strong threat from the Premier League in the quest to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodri.
Spanish midfielder Rodri is ready to leave Atletico Madrid this summer though the Rojiblancos are reluctant to let him leave the club.
Atletico Madrid have already been hit with a lot of exits this summer and the sale of Rodri would be another blow for the Spanish capital club.
Star forward Antoine Griezmann has already confirmed his exit from Atletico Madrid this summer in addition to the exits of club skipper Diego Godin, Felipe Luis and Juanfran.
The experienced trio of Diego Godin, Filipe Luis and Juanfran will leave Atletico Madrid this summer after the expiration of their respective contracts.
Another imminent exit at Atletico Madrid is that of French World Cup winner Lucas Hernandez whom they have sold to German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for a fee believed to be around €80m.
Manchester United want to sign Rodri and they are ready to pay a whopping £62m according to the publication from the Daily Star.
It was revealed that the Red Devils are willing to match the offer from Manchester City who are also interested in the player.
