Club career[edit]

Racing Club[edit]

Born in Sarandí, Greater Buenos Aires, De Paul joined Racing Club's youth setup in 2002, aged eight.[1] He was called up to the main squad on 24 June 2012, while still a junior, for a match against Vélez Sarsfield, but remained unused in the 1–2 home loss.

On 10 February 2013, De Paul played his first match as a professional, replacing Mauro Camoranesi in the 76th minute of a 0–3 loss at Atlético de Rafaela.[2] He scored his first goal a month later, netting the last through a long-range shot in a 3–0 win at San Martín de San Juan.[3]

De Paul appeared in 19 matches during the 2012–13 campaign. He then played a key part in 2013–14, featuring in 35 matches and scoring four times.

Valencia[edit]

On 9 May 2014, it was announced that Valencia CF agreed to a $6.5 million deal for De Paul with Racing.[4] He signed a five-year deal with Los Che on 6 June,[5] and made his La Liga debut on 23 August, replacing Paco Alcácer in the 65th minute in a 1–1 away draw against Sevilla FC, but being sent off just one minute later due to fouling Aleix Vidal.[6]

Udinese[edit]

On 20 July 2016, after a six-month loan deal back at his former club Racing, De Paul was transferred to Italian Serie A club Udinese.[7]
