Club career[edit]

Hércules[edit]

Born in Sanet i els Negrals, Alicante, Valencian Community, Femenía was a product of Hércules CF's youth ranks. He made his first-team debut on 15 June 2008 at just 17, appearing in a Segunda División match at Cádiz CF, a 1–1 draw which eventually certified the Andalusians' relegation even though they protested against the illegal fielding of an opposing player, precisely the youngster.[1]

During the 2008–09 season, Femenía played another game with the main squad, again in the last round but against UD Salamanca (5–1 away win). In the subsequent off-season he signed his first professional contract after penning a five-year link[2] and, in the following campaign, still only 18, he would be a much more important first-team unit, being the first substitute for veteran Francisco Rufete and appearing in nearly 1,000 minutes in the league to help the club return to La Liga after an absence of 13 years.

On 28 August 2010, Femenía made his debut in the top division, replacing Abel Aguilar in the second half of the home fixture against Athletic Bilbao: after only a few minutes on the pitch, however, and a couple of poor decisions, he suffered an anxiety attack from which he later fully recovered, although the Basque eventually won it 1–0.[3]

Barcelona[edit]

Femenía joined FC Barcelona B on 6 July 2011, for 2 million plus €1.5 million in add-ons.[4] He scored his first official goal for the club on 4 September, opening the score in a 4–0 away win against FC Cartagena.[5]

Femenía netted five times in 30 games – 23 starts – in his first season, helping the Catalans to the eighth position.

Real Madrid[edit]

In late August 2013 Femenía was released by Barcelona, stating that he had been "ruined emotionally".[6] Just hours later he signed for Real Madrid, being assigned to the reserves in the second level.[7]
