Marc Bartra career history until 2019
This FM 2013 player profile of Marc Bartra shows another wonderkid from Barcelona’s renowned football academy. At the age of 21 Bartra is already good enough to fit in any top-flight team in Europe. The best thing about him is that his performances are consistent and that you can’t really find a flaw in his profile, he’s fairly strong, fairly quick and very intelligent. In my test save he was a backup for the likes of Pique and Puyol at Barcelona but still managed to make some progress, as his future profile from 2019 shows.
Then he moved to Sevilla for a pretty good fee and had a great couple of seasons there. Barcelona are willing to let him go for 12 million at the start of the game and I think that would be a good investment as this lad could serve you very well for around 10 seasons or even more. He can also provide some cover as a right back but his main role is as a central defender. Last but not least, he has very good technique, first touch and passing for a defender, I guess that’s the Barca education, so he would be an ideal signing for teams that play possession football.
Best buy rating: 9/10
