Born in Lisbon, Portugal, the defender came through the youth system at Portuguese third-division outfit Sintrense. Soon after making his debut aged 17, he was scouted and signed by Portuguese giants S.L. Benfica on a five-year deal. After spending a year on loan at Fátima of Segunda Divisão, the youngster returned to his parent and began featuring for Benfica B in the Segunda Liga. Over the course of 2013-16, the wing-back made over 60 appearances for reserves, being touted as the natural successor for stalwart Maxi Pereira. His first-team debut came in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of arch rivals Sporting CP for the Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira on 9 August 2015. A week later scored his first goal for The Eagles in a 4-0 thumping of Estoril. His debut season was cut-short by a knee ligament injury, but the youngster would return strong the following season. His tenure at Benfica saw him make 65 appearances and chip in with 3 goals and 12 assist. His trophy cabinet boasted back-to-back Premeira Liga (2015/16, 2016/17), Taça de Portugal (2016/17), Taça de Liga (2015/16), and Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira (2016). The Portuguese defender signed a five-year contract with Spanish giants FC Barcelona on 14 July 2017 for a fee €35 million. He made his debut  on 16 August in a 2-0 defeat against Real Madrid in the second leg of the Supercopa de España. He scored his first competitive goal for the Catalans in a 2-0 win over Girona in La Liga. The blistering wing-back has 82 appearances to his name in two seasons for La Blaugrana, adding La Liga (2017/18, 2018/19), Copa del Rey (2017/18), and Supercopa de España (2018) to his already brimming trophy cabinet.
