Football career[edit]

Mallorca[edit]

Born in Almussafes, Ribera Baixa, Valencian Community,[2] Marí was a product of RCD Mallorca's youth system. He made his debuts as a senior with the reserves at the age of just 17, going on to spend several seasons in the third division.

Marí made his first appearance with the first team on 7 December 2011, playing 30 minutes in a 2–2 draw against Granada CF after coming off the bench for fellow youth graduate Pedro Bigas.[3] On 5 May 2012 he played his second La Liga game, again acting as a substitute in a 1–0 home win over Levante UD.[4] He continued to be almost exclusively associated with the B-side until the end of his spell in the Balearic Islands.

Gimnàstic[edit]

On 2 September 2013, Marí signed a contract with Gimnàstic de Tarragona also in the third level.[5] He made his debut for the Catalans on 12 October, starting and conceding a penalty in a 2–2 draw at CD Olímpic de Xàtiva.[6]

Marí scored his first goal for Nàstic on 1 December 2013, netting the winner in a 2–1 home success against Levante UD B.[7] On 25 June 2015, after achieving promotion to Segunda División, he signed a new three-year deal with the club.[2]

Marí scored his first professional goal on 30 August 2015, netting his team's first in a 2–1 away win over CD Tenerife.[8]

Manchester City[edit]

On 15 August 2016, Marí was transferred to Premier League side Manchester City.[9] A day later, he was loaned to Girona FC in a season-long deal.[10]

In the following two campaigns, still owned by City, Marí played with NAC Breda (Dutch Eredivisie, where he was team captain)[11][12] and Deportivo de La Coruña (Spanish second level).[13]

Flamengo[edit]

On 11 July 2019, Marí was signed with Brazilian side Flamengo on a contact until 2022.[14] Flamengo paid approximately €1.3 million (or R$5.5 millions) for Marí.[15] He has became the third spanish footballer to play for the Rubro-Negro, after goalkeeper Talladas, in 1937, and forward José Ufarte, between 1961 and 1964.[16]
