Spain global midfielder Rodrigo Hernandez has ended his contract with Atletico Madrid by paying the 70 million euros (79 million United States dollar) buyout clause.
However, the 34-year-old, now with the national team in Brazil for the Copa America final, struggled with injuries towards the end of last season.
"I saw him when he started when I was little and I am close to him (in style), but I also have other skills". I look for the challenge on the sporting front and that is why I moved here.
"It's important for me". I think they are just a small step away from reproducing that in Europe.
"Of course, there were more teams". I am really proud of that.
"Of course, there were more teams interested, and I'm really proud of that, but I've made a good decision. It is the place I wanted to be".
Rodri, who has played alongside Busquets for the national side, hailed the Barcelona star but admits he can see the similarities between the pair.
Those impressive performances alerted Manchester City, with the player reportedly having a €70million release clause.
"I am not coming here because Pep is Spanish".
"I like this football so I like watching City games and learn".
"The way coaches make you improve means a lot". I am a footballer, playing football.
