Marc Bartra graduated from Barcelona’s La Masia youth academy and made his professional debut for the Catalonians in February 2010 against Atlético Madrid, under the management of Pep Guardiola when he was 19-years old.

Bartra has made over 100 appearances for the club and won five La Liga titles; two each of UEFA Champions League trophies, Copa del Rey, UEFA Super Cups, and Supercopa de España titles; and one FIFA Club World Cup.

Borussia Dortmund’s website reported some clarifications are still required before making the move.
