Could Manchester City promote one of their own to support Rodri?

One of the biggest priorities for Manchester City this summer is finding support for Rodri. City’s midfield general is by far the champion’s most important player. Due to this fact, he carries a heavy workload for Pep Guardiola’s side. The champions have been linked to a host of players this summer in a bid to provide Rodri with the support he needs in midfield. But could the champions promote one of their own to fill the role for next season?

Young Manchester City midfielder Jacob Wright appears destined for a long career at the top level. He has shone in the City academy system in recent seasons. Wright made his first-team debut last season during City’s FA Cup third-round tie win over Huddersfield. The fact that he made his first-team debut last season despite his tender age shows how well thought of he is at the world champions.

Wright is a defensive midfielder who shines in the role. His defensive abilities stand out when he is playing in the heart of midfield. But the youngster can also be a weapon in possession. He is an extremely good passer and has an eye for goal when the chance presents. Those attributes would be an ideal addition to Pep Guardiola’s squad.

The future does appear bright for Jacob Wright. There is also a vacant role in the Manchester City squad for a player to support Rodri. Given Oscar Bobb’s rise last season, the champions aren’t adverse to promoting academy prospects to first-team roles. Wright could potentially be the next player to follow suit.

It may turn out to be the case that Manchester City promote one of their own to support Rodri next season. If they do Jacob Wright appears to be the player tailor-made for the role.
