Jordi Alba Ramos born 21 March 1989 is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for FC Barcelona and the Spain national team.
Mainly a left-back and a player of great speed, he can also operate as a left winger.

 

He started his career at Hospitalet, but finished his development at Valencia (after a seven-year youth spell with Barcelona), rising to prominence in La Liga with the club. In 2012, he returned to Barcelona.

 

Alba represented Spain at the 2014 World Cup and two European Championships, having first appeared for the team in 2011. He won the latter tournament.

 

At the FC Barcelona
On 28 June 2012, Alba signed a five-year contract with Barcelona for a transfer fee of €14 million. 
He made his official debut on 19 August, playing the full 90 minutes in a 5–1 home win against Real Sociedad.

 

Alba scored his first goal for the Blaugrana on 20 October 2012, netting the opener in a 5–4 win at Deportivo de La Coruña and scoring the last one through an own goal. In the following game, at home against Celtic for the Champions League group stage, he found the net in the 93rd minute for a 2–1 triumph.

 

On 12 March 2013, Alba scored his fifth goal of the campaign, netting in the last-minute to complete Barcelona's 4–0 home win over A.C. Milan in the Champions League round-of-16 after a 0–2 loss, which signified his team was the first in the competition's history to overturn such a deficit. He ended his first year at the Camp Nou as league champion, as Tito Vilanova's side regained the title from Real Madrid.

 

On 2 June 2015, Alba agreed to a new five-year deal with a new buyout clause of €150 million. Four days later, he started in the Champions League final, helping the club to its fifth accolade in the competition by beating Juventus F.C. at Berlin's Olympiastadion. He contributed with 38 appearances all competitions comprised (one goal[23]), in an eventual treble conquest.

 

On 22 May 2016, Alba won the second Copa del Rey of his career – also second with Barcelona – scoring in the 97th minute of the final against Sevilla FC after a through pass from Lionel Messi, in an eventual 2–0 extra time triumph at the Vicente Calderón Stadium.
