Man Utd could land Berrada’s next Rodri by signing £8m gem who is “something special”.



Perception: Manchester United could acquire Berrada’s next Rodri by spending £8 million on a “something special” treasure.United must attempt to replicate the success of their city rivals amidst their own eleven-year absence from a league championship. Berrada, who is expected to bring his evident expertise to the table at the Theatre of Dreams, could be a key player in that endeavor.

Recruitment is an aspect of the Red Devils’ operations that may be enhanced by this statement appointment; Berrada was instrumental in the 2022 acquisition of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.Having also assisted in the acquisition of Rodri, another influential City player, the incoming manager could soon accomplish the same at Old Trafford by completing a key signing.


United are pursuing the next Rodri.

As reported by TEAMtalk earlier this month, Manchester United is among the leading European clubs interested in 20-year-old Argentinean Federico Redondo, whose recent performances for Argentinos Juniors have garnered considerable attention.Liverpool and Real Madrid have also expressed their veneration for the 6-foot-2 gem, but Erik ten Hag’s squad reportedly has the ability to acquire him for £8 million this month, which is a relatively modest price in the current market.


Berrada, who is expected to assume his new position at the conclusion of the current campaign, could lead the charge for Redondo’s signature this summer if a deal is not reached before the window closes. Such a bargain transfer would likely signal a departure from the club’s recent costly and disorganized approach to acquiring players.A comparison of Redondo and Rodri

In 2019, Berrada facilitated the acquisition of Rodri from Atletico Madrid for an estimated £62.8 million, despite rumors that Manchester United was also interested in the player.


Rodri, who scored the game-winning goal in last season’s Champions League final and, according to his manager Pep Guardiola, has arguably developed into the “best” at his position in the world of football since City won the race for his signature following his release from Villarreal.Identifying the 27-year-old’s heir apparent in Redondo, whom talent evaluator Jacek Kulig compared to the City star, could then enable the Red Devils to discover their own midfield beast. The Argentine U20 international has been compared to the City star.


According to journalist Roy Nemer, the £8 million playmaker is “something special” and has the potential to be the beating heart of Ten Hag’s midfield. As an indication of his ball-playing quality, he has averaged 7.07 progressive passes per 90 over the past year, which is comparable to Rodri’s output in Manchester (9.63 per 90).Another towering presence comparable to the 6′ 3 Rodri, the defensive-minded asset is a true “midfield controller” who, according to Kulig, can dictate the cadence of a game, much like the “deep-lying orchestrator” he was while playing for Atleti.With 56 appearances across all competitions, Rodri was a pivotal figure in Manchester City’s treble-winning season last year. As such, United would be wise to pursue his services; thus, acquiring an ideal successor in Redondo is prudent.
