Alejandro Balde, born in Barcelona to Guinean and Dominican parents, joined Barça in 2011 at the age of eight after coming up through ranks at Espanyol. He is of the 2003 generation, but has always played a year above. He has won the league at U10 A, B and C, U12 A and C, U 14 A and B, A16 A and B levels, and although he would normally now be in the U19B squad, he is instead playing for Barça B.
Balde made his debut for the Spanish national side in the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
Skill and strength make Alejandro Balde a fast, explosive fullback who can also support the attack.
