Carlos Soler Barragán (born 2 January 1997) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Valencia CF as a central midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Valencia, Soler joined hometown club Valencia CF's youth setup in 2005 at the age of eight after impressing them while playing for Bonrepòs, the team of his neighbourhood. Initially a prolific striker, he was pushed back to an attacking midfielder and to central midfielder during his graduation at Valencia[1] He made his senior debut with the reserves on 3 May 2015, starting in a 0–1 Segunda División B away loss against UE Cornellà.[2]

Soler scored his first senior goal on 13 December 2015, netting his team's second in a 2–2 draw at CF Badalona.[3] The following 12 March he renewed his contract,[4] and was an unused substitute in the main squad's 2–1 home win against Athletic Bilbao for the season's UEFA Europa League.

On 10 December 2016 Soler made his first team – and La Liga – debut, replacing Mario Suárez in a 2–3 loss against Real Sociedad at the Anoeta Stadium.[5] He scored his first goal in the category the following 21 January, netting the first in a 2–0 Valencian Community derby win against Villarreal CF at the Estadio de la Cerámica.
