23 year old winger Cristian Rodriguez has shown this season in Portugal that he is certainly going to be an excellent player in the future for his side Porto and for the international side, Uruguay.

Cristian Rodriguez partnered with Lisandro Lopez and Hulk to form a stunning trio of striking talents this year for Portugal, and Rodriguez has even seen interest from the likes of Fiorentina.

Rodriguez has had a largely unsuccessful spell at Paris St Germain, but his move to Porto has seen rapid improvement for the Uruguayan.

Rodriguez is excellent in the air for such a small player, but is best known for his long-range efforts that have seen him quickly become of the best prospects in Europe.

During his time back home in Uruguay, Rodriguez was even praised for "making the opposing defence cry", such was the beauty of his mazy runs at goal.

Rodriguez should spend the next couple of years maturing his talent at Porto before making a move to a bigger league in Europe.
