Declan Rice praises rival midfielder as the Premier League’s finest.

Rodri, who plays for Manchester City, is the finest midfielder in the Premier League at the moment, according to Declan Rice.

Rice became the most expensive British player of all time when he joined Arsenal for £105 million earlier this summer. The 24-year-old was one of a number of high-profile midfielders shelled out on by Premier League clubs. Rice became the most expensive British player of all time when he joined Arsenal.

In the past year, Chelsea has surpassed their own British transfer record twice in order to sign Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo. In addition, players like as Romeo Lavia, Matheus Nunes, and Dominik Szoboszlai have recently been bought for enormous prices.

But in spite of all the money that is being spent, Rice stated in an interview with Channel 4 before England’s international friendly match against England’s longtime rivals Scotland that there is one player who stands out from the rest: “Obviously the main one in the Premier League is Rodri, he’s incredible,” he remarked. “He’s unbelievable.”

“What a player he is, the way he works, the way he keeps that Man City team ticking, you know he’s a top player,” said one commentator. “What a player he is.”

After an incredible season with City in 2022/23, Rodri was recently put forward for consideration for the Ballon d’Or award. The Spaniard’s goal in the UEFA Champions League final was the game-winner, guaranteeing not only the club’s first-ever victory in the European Cup but also a historic treble consisting of victories in both the Premier League and the FA Cup.

Rice subsequently joined Arsenal, a choice that he said was due to the influence of Mikel Arteta. There was even speculation that Rice could join Rodri at the Etihad Stadium, with a £90 million offer being rejected by West Ham United. Despite this, there was talk that Rice could join Rodri at the Etihad Stadium.

“I believe that from the very first time that I met him, I knew that I wanted him to take care of the next stage of my career. Rice went on to say that he was impressed by “just the way he spoke, his aura, the way he sees the game, and the way he wants to play football.”

“I think you’ve seen Arsenal, and the way they’ve played as a team over the past two years, I could really see myself fitting in there, and so far my decision to join them has proven to be successful.” Since the first moment I stepped foot in the building until now, I’ve always had this unshakeable intuition that Arsenal would turn out to be the perfect club for me.
