Gual started his career with his home town club of Noia in Sant Sadurní. At the age of 22 he was picked up by Reus where he stayed for eight seasons, becoming an established star both at home and in Europe.
The midfielder sought a change of scenery and headed for Liceo in the season 2009/10. He failed to win a trophy with the Galician side but he was named most valuable player of the season.
He stayed for just one campaign in La Coruña before returning to Reus. A Barça victory over his former team Liceo handed Gual and Reus the league title, their first for 38 years.
In 2011 he was named player of the season alongside his former team mate Guillem Trabal. The following year he signed for Barça and since then he has been a key part of the blaugranes' highly successful last few seasons.
His is famed for his peripheral vision, and he can play the ball without even looking. He is a great passer, and strong in one-on-one situations. He has a great change of pace and can do some amazing things. He is a link man, who anticipates well in defence and is effective on the counter attack.
