Club career[edit]

Rodríguez began his career with River Plate, whom he debuted for in 2014. He stayed with the club until 2016.

In the summer of 2016, Rodríguez joined Mexican side Club Tijuana. He made 39 league appearances and scored five goals.

On 7 July 2017, Rodríguez joined Club América in a reported $7 million deal, reuniting with former Tijuana manager Miguel Herrera.[4]

On 9 May 2024, Rodríguez signed a pre-contract agreement with FC Barcelona. He will join the club as a free agent in the summer of 2024.

International career[edit]

On 9 June 2017, Rodríguez earned his first call-up with the Argentina national team for the friendly match against Brazil in Melbourne. He came on as a substitute for Paulo Dybala in Argentina’s 1–0 win.

In May 2019, Rodríguez was included in Argentina's 23-man squad for the 2019 Copa América.[5]

He scored his first international goal in Argentina's second group match of the 2021 Copa América on 18 June 2021, the only goal in a 1–0 victory against Uruguay.[6]
