. . . Álex Collado . . .

Born in Sabadell, Barcelona, Catalonia, Collado joined FC Barcelona‘s youth setup in 2009, after stints at RCD Espanyol and CE Mercantil.[3] He was a member of the Barcelona youth team that won the 2017–18 UEFA Youth League, defeating Chelsea 3–0 in the final.[4]

After progressing through the youth setup, Collado made his debut for Barcelona B in the Segunda División on 17 March 2018, starting in a 1–1 away draw against Lorca FC.[5] He scored his first goal for Barça B on 15 December 2018, the last-minute winner in a 2–1 home win against Lleida Esportiu.[6]

Collado made his first team debut for Barcelona, as a starter, on 4 May 2019 in a 2–0 away loss to Celta Vigo in La Liga.[7] Ahead of the 2020–21 season, Collado was named the new captain of Barça B following the long term injury of former captain Ferrán Sarsanedas.[8]

On 31 March 2021, Collado renewed his contract with Barça for two further years, until 2023.[9] However in August 2021 during Barcelona’s pre-season, Collado left Barça’s training camp in Stuttgart to resolve his future.[10] After failed loan moves to Club Brugge and Sheffield United, Collado was left unregistered and wasn’t included in either the senior squad or Barça B, which meant that he couldn’t play until January 2022.[11][12] It was then decided by the club that he would have to leave on loan in January due to La Liga regulations not allowing his registration for the rest of the season.[13] On 9 December, Barça had announced that an agreement in principle was reached with Granada CF for the loan of Collado until the end of the season.[14]
