Maximiliano Rodríguez Maeso (born 2 October 1990), or simply Maxi Rodríguez, is an Uruguayan professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Peñarol, on loan from Grêmio.


Born in Montevideo, Rodríguez finished his formation with local Montevideo Wanderers. He made his professional debut on 23 August 2009, against Peñarol,[1] and scored his first professional goal on 24 January 2010 against the same team.[2]

In 2012–13 season, Rodríguez scored 15 goals in only 22 appearances (9 in Apertura and 6 in Clausura). On 10 May 2013, he was signed a four-year deal with Grêmio.[3]

On 6 July Rodríguez made his Campeonato Brasileiro Série A debut, in a 1–1 away draw against Atlético-PR.[4] He appeared regularly during the campaign, scoring four goals in 18 matches; highlights in a match against Náutico on 11 September, where he applied three subsequent nutmegs in Jean Rolt, and also assisted Paulinho in the last of the 2–0 away success.

In August 2014, after only appearing sparingly during the year, Rodríguez was loaned to Vasco da Gama until December.[5] He returned to Tricolor after appearing regularly for the former, which won promotion back to the top division at first attempt.

On 5 January 2015 Rodríguez joined Universidad de Chile, also in a temporary deal.[6]
