Manchester City have reportedly decided that they will not pay in excess of their valuation of Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodri.
City will be in the market for a new defensive-minded player for the middle of the park during the next transfer window, and Rodri has allegedly been identified as a potential signing.
However, according to Sky Sports News, City have no intention of getting themselves involved in a bidding war for the Spaniard.
The 22-year-old has a release clause of just over £60m, but there is the suggestion that City may look to sign the player for less than that figure.
Rodri has made a total of 42 appearances during his first campaign at Atletico having signed from Villarreal last summer.
