MANCHESTER CITY'S RECORD SIGNING RODRI POSING FOR PICTURES WITH CLUB SHIRT 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY SIGNING RODRI SAYING: "It's a dream for me coming here, great team, great staff.

I think I have a lot of things to learn and I decided this is the best..

To forward my career, the best place I can be today.

I'm proud of all I've done and today I want to keep growing, keep learning.

I saw Manchester on the TV and I imagine one day I play there so I'm really happy and excited to start this period here in Manchester." STORY: Premier League champions Manchester City smashed their transfer record on Thursday (July 4) with the signing of Spanish international midfielder Rodri on a five-year deal from Atletico Madrid.

The La Liga club announced on Wednesday (July 3) that City had paid a 70 million euro ($79 million) buyout clause for the tall 23-year-old.

City confirmed on their website that Rodri was a record signing.

The deal eclipsed the 60 million pounds ($75 million) they paid Leicester City for Algerian international Riyad Mahrez in July last year.

Rodri -- Rodrigo Hernandez Cascante -- follows Angelino, the Spanish left back who joined from PSV Eindhoven, as manager Pep Guardiola's second signing of the summer.

City became the first side to claim the English treble of the league championship as well as the FA Cup and League Cup last season.

City said the defensive midfielder, seen as a long-term successor to 34-year-old Brazilian Fernandinho, would play in the number 16 shirt.

The squad number was used by Argentine forward Sergio Aguero, who also joined from Atletico Madrid, from 2011 to 2015 and has been vacant since.

City kick off their 2019-20 Premier League season with a trip to West Ham United on Aug.

Mikel Arteta feels Jamie Vardy should have been sent off before equaliser

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta bemoaned the decision to send off Eddie Nketiah but not Jamie Vardy as the Leicester striker struck late to salvage a point at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners looked on course for a fourth straight Premier League win after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring and the home side then created a string of chances to kill off the game. Instead they had to settle for a 1-1 draw as Vardy scored with six minutes remaining, soon after Arsenal had been reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of Nketiah.
