Bernardo Silva has hailed the €70 million (£63m/$79m) arrival of Rodri to Manchester City.
He said the ex Atletico Madrid midfielder will make the English champions more complete.
Silva is also very happy to see his club signing more top talents all over the world.
His words, “He’s only just arrived but I hope he can improve our squad.
“He had a fantastic season with Atletico and it’s good to have a player in that position that we lacked. Fernandinho was the only one and then [Ilkay] Gundogan was fantastic when he played there.
“It’s good to have a more complete squad and I hope he can improve us even more.”
On if he feels match fit during preseason, “Not yet.
“We just arrived a week ago, but I will try to get back to my best.
“But it’s normal – each pre-season it takes two, three weeks, depending on the season, but I am working hard to try and get back to my best and that’s what I will try to do.”
