Early Life & Education

Rodri, a talented individual, was born on June 22, 1996, in the enchanting city of Madrid, Spain. Growing up, he was lovingly nurtured by his parents—his father, known as Hernandez, and his mother, Cascante. He has a sister named Mariana Machado.

Despite the challenges of balancing his academic pursuits with his exceptional performance on the football field, Rodri successfully obtained a degree in business administration and management while showcasing his extraordinary skills at the renowned Etihad Stadium.


Rodri‘s tale took a notable twist on May 24, 2018, when he returned to the embrace of Atlético Madrid after a deft deal with Villarreal. The deal, a symphony of negotiations, saw Rodri penning a five-year contract with the Madrid team, the notes of which were composed of €20 million, with an additional €5 million harmonizing based on specific variables.

In the grand orchestration of his return, Rodri‘s debut on August 15, 2018, was a performance for the ages. He played a mesmerizing 71 minutes in the 2018 UEFA Super Cup, helping Atlético orchestrate a 4-2 score in extra time, humbling their city rivals, Real Madrid.

Fast forward to July 3, 2019, and the Manchester City symphony swelled to a staggering £62.6 million, hitting the crescendo of Rodri‘s release clause. With this, his Atlético movement concluded, and a new movement began with Manchester City, composed of a five-year agreement.

The harmony continued at the 2019 FA Community Shield on August 4, with Rodri playing a pivotal role in the Wembley Stadium spectacle, where Manchester City’s music blended beautifully with Liverpool’s, culminating in a one-all harmony.

Days later, Rodri‘s Premier League debut resonated with brilliance as Manchester City composed a resounding 5-0 victory against West Ham United. On September 14, 2019, his notes echoed again, this time in the scoreline of a 3-2 loss against Norwich City, his name etched into the music of that match.

The international stage beckoned on March 16, with Rodri joining Spain’s composition. A mere five days later, he took his place on this new symphony, substituting for Thiago Alcântara in a harmonious 1-1 draw against Germany in Düsseldorf.

Manchester City emerged victorious, with Rodri scoring a crucial goal in the final minute, securing their win on August 27, 2023. It came right after Sheffield United’s Jayden Bogle secured their first point of the season with his strike.
