Marc Bartra Career

Born in Sant Jaume dels Domenys, Tarragona, Catalonia, Bartra joined RCD Espanyol as a child before moving to FC Barcelona's youth system, La Masia, at age 11. After progressing through its ranks, he was promoted to the B side in 2009.

Bartra made his first-team debut on 14 February 2010, coming on as a substitute for Jeffrén Suárez for the final 30 minutes of a 2–1 loss to Atlético Madrid at the Vicente Calderón Stadium. He started his first La Liga game one year and three months later, playing the entire 0–0 home draw against Deportivo de La Coruña, and scored his first goal on 21 May 2011 to help them come from behind to win it 3–1 at Málaga CF in the season's last round.

In the 2012–13 campaign, Bartra joined the first team squad permanently, but manager Tito Vilanova tended to field Javier Mascherano, Alex Song and Adriano ahead of him, and played only 16 games in all competitions. He signed a new three-year contract in March 2014.

On 16 April 2014, in the final of the Copa del Rey against Real Madrid, with five minutes remaining, Gareth Bale outsprinted Bartra from the halfway line – with the former running off the field at one point – before scoring the 2–1 winner. He himself had levelled the score midway into the second half, from a Xavi corner kick. He remained a third or fourth choice under new manager Luis Enrique, making 25 appearances and scoring once as the team won the treble in 2014–15.

On 3 June 2016, Bartra was sold to German club Borussia Dortmund for an estimated fee of €8 million, signing a four-year deal. He made his competitive debut on 14 August, playing the entire 2–0 loss against FC Bayern Munich for the DFL-Supercup, and a month later scored his first goal in a 6–0 win at Legia Warsaw for the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.

On 11 April 2017, when Dortmund was heading to Westfalenstadion for their Champions League quarter-final tie against AS Monaco FC, the team bus was hit by three explosions. Bartra, who broke the radial bone in his arm and had debris lodged in his hand in the bombing, underwent an operation the following day, when the Germans played the rescheduled game and lost 2–3; he later described the event as the "longest and hardest 15 minutes of my life", and returned to training 29 days after his surgery.

Bartra's first match after returning took place on 20 May 2017, and he played the entire 4–3 home win over SV Werder Bremen– he had also been an unused substitute in the previous fixture against FC Augsburg. One week later, he helped to the conquest of the DFB-Pokal after starting in the 2–1 defeat of Eintracht Frankfurt in Berlin.

On 30 January 2018, Bartra completed his transfer to Real Betis on a five-and-a-half-year contract. He scored his first goal for his new team on 12 May, putting the hosts ahead in an eventual 2–2 derby home draw against Sevilla FC.

On 14 August 2022, Bartra signed for Trabzonspor in the Turkish Süper Lig for €1.25 million.

International career

Bartra won 37 caps for Spain at youth level all categories comprised, including 16 for the under-21s. He made his debut for the full side on 16 November 2013, playing the entire 2–1 friendly win in Equatorial Guinea. This game was later annulled by FIFA as they had not been notified early enough that the referee would be from Equatorial Guinea, and his first valid appearance took place on 8 September 2014 as he came on as a 68th-minute substitute for Sergio Ramos in a 5–1 home triumph against Macedonia for the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifiers.

On 17 May 2016, Bartra was named in Vicente del Bosque's provisional squad of 25 for the finals in France, and he also made it to the final list of 23. As the tournament ended at the round of 16, he was an unused member.

Bartra scored his first goal for his country on 11 October 2018, contributing to a 4–1 friendly defeat of Wales at the Millennium Stadium.

Gareth Bale's top 10 goals EVER after the Welsh wizard announces his retirement

www.dailymail.co.uk, January 9, 2023
Wonder goals. Golf. Madrid. In that order. After Gareth Bale suddenly announced his immediate retirement from football on Monday at the age of 33, thoughts inevitably turn to the magic moments the Welsh wizard provided during his storied and stellar career. At his peak, the winger was absolutely unplayable, probably the third best player in the world behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and probably second - behind only Messi - in his capacity to create gorgeous goals out of nothing. From his unique off-the-pitch scorching past Barcelona's Marc Bartra (right), to a sublime overhead kick in the Champions League final (left), fans got used to seeing Bale's trademark love-heart celebration (inset) and beaming grin after stunning strikes. So below, Sportsmail's Max Mathews attempts to narrow down the long list of contenders and go through the top 10 Gareth Bale goals of all time.

PETE JENSON: Gareth Bale failed to win over Real Madrid fans, but the criticism never bothered him

www.dailymail.co.uk, January 9, 2023
PETE JENSON: Gareth Bale's brilliance will always be best summed up by one goal - and it isn't that extraordinary volley past Liverpool keeper Loris Karius in the 2018 Champions League final. I was at the Spanish Cup final in 2014, and like most of the main stand, briefly lost sight of the Cardiff Express as he ran off the pitch and then back on to it in order to sprint past Barcelona defender Marc Bartra and score the winner five minutes from time. That was his night. He was up against Neymar who had been Barcelona's big signing the previous summer. It was a 'Clasico' but with a difference because in a neutral venue the stadium was split with each of the Spanish giants filling half of the old 55,000 concrete bowl.

Hector Bellerin 'wants to terminate £110,000-a-week Arsenal contract' in a bid to force a move

www.dailymail.co.uk, August 15, 2022
Hector Bellerin (left) has requested that Arsenal terminate his £110,00-a-week contract at the club despite having twelve months left on his deal. Bellerin has requested that his current deal is cancelled to allow him to make the move away from the Gunners on a free transfer. The 27-year-old full back has found himself frozen out at the Emirates under Mikel Arteta (right), and spent last season on loan with Real Betis making 32 appearances in all competitions as Los Verdiblancos won the Copa del Rey for just the third time in their history.
