Balde entered the youth program of Espanyol, one of Barcelona's main competitors, when he was six years old, starting his football career. He stayed with the team for seven years until transferring to Barcelona's La Masia school in 2019.

 

Balde initially made an impact at La Masia thanks to his exceptional technical skill, speed, and agility. Before making his first-team debut in August 2021, he progressed through Barcelona's development system, playing for their U-17, U-19, and B teams.

 

Balde made an impressive Barcelona debut. He started and participated for the entire 90 minutes in the team's La Liga season opener against Real Sociedad in 2021–22. In the 2-1 triumph, he also contributed an assist to Memphis Depay's goal.

 

Playing Style:

 

Balde has continued to wow with his performances for Barcelona since making his debut. He has shown maturity well above his years and the ability to compete at the top level of club football. Balde's ability to attack is one of his greatest assets. He poses a continuous danger down the left wing, outpacing rival defenders with his speed and dribbling prowess. He is also a skilled ball-crosser, frequently sending precise crosses into the box for his teammates to score.

 

Balde is also very strong on defence. He can make crucial tackles and interceptions to stop opponent assaults because he has exceptional positional awareness. He is an excellent defensive asset because of his toughness and aerial skill. Balde has received recognition not only for his stellar on-field accomplishments but also for his attitude and work ethic. He is renowned for being a modest and dedicated athlete who is constantly trying to become better.

 

Balde has drawn parallels to other elite left-backs like Jordi Alba and Alphonso Davies because of his performances. Balde has the potential to rank among the top left-backs in the world, despite the fact that it is still early in his career.
