Alan Baró Calabuig (born 22 June 1985) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Australian club Central Coast Mariners FC mainly as a central defender but also as a defensive midfielder.
Born in Darnius, Girona, Catalonia, Baró began his career with local CF Peralada and UE Figueres, suffering relegation from Segunda División B with the latter at the end of 2006–07. On 6 July 2007, he moved to fellow league side Alicante CF, playing 39 official games in his first season as the Valencians earned promotion and a further 26 in the second as they were relegated.
In the summer of 2009, Baró moved to La Liga with CA Osasuna, initially being registered to their reserves in the third level. On 26 October, he was called up by manager José Antonio Camacho for a Copa del Rey match against Xerez CD, but eventually did not feature in the 2–1 away win; the following 24 January, away to the same opponents (same venue and score), he played the final minute in place of Javier Camuñas without touching the ball, handing him the record of the shortest career for the Navarrese club.
On 8 July 2010, Baró returned to Segunda División, signing a two-year deal at Albacete Balompié. He stayed for only one season at the Estadio Carlos Belmonte – ending in relegation – being sent off in the 26th minute of a 2–4 loss at Xerez on 23 April 2011.
Subsequently, Baró moved to another team in the third tier, SD Ponferradina, totalling 44 appearances in his debut campaign as they won promotion via the play-offs. He was an automatic first-choice during his spell at the Estadio El Toralín, mainly as a stopper, scoring his first goal on 9 December 2012 in a 3–1 home win against CD Mirandés.
Baró started in 34 of his 35 appearances in 2015–16, but the club was relegated from the second division after a four-year stay.
On 7 July 2016, Baró joined A-League side Melbourne Victory FC as a replacement for retired Matthieu Delpierre. He was released on 12 May 2017, moving to fellow league team Central Coast Mariners FC late in that month.
