The holding midfielder played a significant part in the Yellow Submarine’s 2017/18 season, making 47 appearances across all competitions.
Rodri made his debut for Spain in March this year, in the 1-1 draw with Germany, and also won the European Under-19 Championship with La Roja in 2015.
Rodri was on Atletico’s books as a teenager back in 2013 when he left to join Villarreal.
