Adrián González Morales (born 25 May 1988), known simply as Adrián, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Málaga CF as a central midfielder.
His career was spent mostly in La Liga, where he totalled 243 games in service of six teams, adding more than 50 in Segunda División for three.
A product of Real Madrid's youth system, Madrid-born Adrián spent 2006–07 with the reserves Real Madrid Castilla where he was trained by his father, former club legend Míchel. He then served two second division loans in the following season, with RC Celta de Vigo and Gimnàstic de Tarragona, being irregularly used in both sides.
In late May 2008, Adrián was bought by another team from the capital, Getafe CF, with Real Madrid having the option to re-buy the player. He made his competitive debut on 5 October, playing 15 minutes in a 2–2 home draw with UD Almería; midway through the campaign, he would be again coached by his father after the sacking of Víctor Muñoz.
Adrián started in many games of 2009–10, which brought heavy criticism on coach Míchel, who was accused of nepotism. He lost his starting position midway through the season, but eventually returned, scoring his first goal in La Liga on 25 April 2010 as Getafe downed Sevilla FC 4–3 at home – he also provided an assist in the match– and started the last four games as the club collected eight points and qualified for the UEFA Europa League, as sixth.
In mid-August 2010, Adrián terminated his contract with Getafe and joined fellow league side Racing de Santander. A starter throughout most of the campaign although he rarely finished a game, he made his official debut with the Cantabrians on 29 August in a 0–3 home loss against FC Barcelona.
After his team's relegation in 2012, Adrián went back to his hometown and signed a two-year deal at Rayo Vallecano. Mainly a substitute in his first year, he scored his first goal on 25 September 2013 in a 1–4 loss at Sevilla and added two more on 19 December in a 3–1 win over Real Valladolid in the Copa del Rey.
On 26 June 2014, Adrián joined Elche CF for two years. Following their administrative relegation from the top flight, he took part in pre-season before cutting ties in mid-August 2015, linking with SD Eibar for the next three seasons. He scored five goals in his debut season in the Basque Country, including one on his debut in a 3–1 away win against Granada CF.
On 23 May 2017, Adrián reunited with his father at Málaga CF after agreeing to a three-year contract with the option for a further season.
