Player Bio

Born in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, he is a product of Club de Fútbol Pachuca’s youth system. Debuting for the Mexican outfit on 21 July 2010, the midfielder went on to feature in 54 games for the first-team. The youngster was scouted and signed by Portuguese giants FC Porto on 28 June 2013 for a fee of €8 million. On 18 August, the Mexican midfielder made his Premeira Liga debut, coming on as a late substitute in a 3-1 victory over Vitória de Setúbal. Two months later, the midfielder bagged his first goal for FC Porto, scoring in a 4-0 demolition of Olhanense. Soon Zorro was an indispensable part of Porto’s midfield; during his tenure he clocked in 245 competitive appearances, scoring 35 goals and providing 35 assists. Zorro’s crowning moment came on 15 April 2018, when he scored an injury-time winner over rivals Benfica, taking the Dragões top of the Portuguese league with four matches remaining. Porto would hold on to pole position, giving the club their first league title in 5 years. On July 2019, the Mexican moved to Spain to sign for La Liga powerhouse Atlético Madrid on a three-year contract. He made his debut for the Los Rojiblancos on 18 September, coming on as a second-half substitute to score a late equalizer in a 2-2 draw against Juventus in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.
