Born in Cullera, Valencian Community, Bernat was a product of Valencia CF's youth system. He made his senior debuts at only 17, appearing with the reserves in Tercera División and helping them return to Segunda División B; he was brought to the main squad for the 2011 pre-season, scoring in a 3–0 away win against Sporting Clube de Portugal, and earned a professional contract until 2015 shortly after.
Bernat made his debut with the Che's first team in a 4–3 La Liga home win against Racing de Santander on 27 August 2011: he started the game and was replaced at half-time, with the score at 2–1 for the visitors.
Bernat scored his first official goal for Valencia on 28 November 2012, netting his team's last in a 3–1 home win against UE Llagostera for the season's Copa del Rey (5–1 on aggregate). He netted his first in the league roughly one year later, coming from the bench for the 1–1 equalizer at Elche CF (eventual 1–2 loss).
On 7 July 2014, Bernat signed for FC Bayern Munich on a five-year contract. He made his Bundesliga debut on 22 August, playing the full 90 minutes of a 2–1 home win against VfL Wolfsburg. He was at No.1 in Outside of the Boot's Talent Radar Top 20 Young Players of 2014 feature. He scored his first competitive goal for Bayern Munich in a 4–1 loss at VfL Wolfsburg on 30 January 2015.
Bernat moved through the Spanish international youth setup, representing all sides between the under-16s and the under-21s. He made his debut with the former in 2009, and with the under-17 side he reached the final at the 2010 UEFA European Championship, playing alongside Valencia teammate Paco Alcácer.
On 3 October 2014, Bernat was called up to Spain manager Vicente del Bosque's 23-man squad for European qualifiers against Slovakia and Luxembourg. He made his debut on 12 October away to Luxembourg, replacing Andrés Iniesta for the final 20 minutes and scoring the last goal of a 4–0 win.
