The Spanish international has made 151 appearances for City since joining from Atlético Madrid three years ago.

“Joining City in 2019 is the best decision I’ve made in my career,” said 26-year-old Rodri.

The starting midfielder helped City win back-to-back league titles and the League Cup twice during his three seasons at the Etihad Stadium.

“Once you start winning big titles, you don’t want to stop,” said Rodri, who scored a career-high seven goals last season. “City, I think, gives me the best chance of winning trophies and that’s why I’m so happy to stay here longer.”

City added striker Erling Haaland and midfielder Kalvin Phillips to manager Pep Guardiola’s squad this summer.
