Carles Planas Antolínez (born 4 March 1991) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Girona FC as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Barcelona[edit]

Born in Sant Celoni, Barcelona, Catalonia, Planas started playing football for his hometown club, moving to FC Barcelona's youth system, La Masia, at age 9. After progressing through its ranks he was promoted to the B-team in 2009, going on to play several Segunda División seasons with the club.

In late November/early December 2012, Planas played his first two official games with the main squad: he made his debut in a 3–1 home win against Deportivo Alavés for the campaign's Copa del Rey (6–1 on aggregate), playing the last 20 minutes of the match in the place of Adriano.[1] The following week, as the Blaugrana were already qualified as first in their UEFA Champions League group, he started against S.L. Benfica in a 0–0 draw, also at the Camp Nou.[2]

Celta[edit]

Planas was released by Barcelona on 5 June 2014,[3] but on the same day he joined Celta de Vigo on a three-year deal.[4] He made his La Liga debut on 24 August, playing the entirety of the 3–1 home win over Getafe CF.[5]

Planas' contract was not extended at the end of 2016–17, and he left Balaídos after having appeared in 59 competitive games.[6]

Girona[edit]

On 13 July 2017, free agent Planas signed a three-year contract with newly promoted Girona FC.[7] He spent the better part of his first season dealing with injury problems.[8][9]
