Spain

An attacking midfielder, Bruna spent five years in the youth set-up at Real Madrid from 2002 to 2007. At the time, Bruna was considered hugely promising and even called "the Messi of Madrid".

Liverpool

In the summer of 2007 Bruna moved to England to sign for Liverpool, having been offered and turned down a professional contract by Real Madrid.

"My father agreed with me that moving here would be a great opportunity. I already knew about Liverpool from the Champions League, the final we won and the final we lost. These games, as well as the Chelsea semi-finals, made a big impression on me." A left-footer with a talent for set pieces, he learnt his trade with the reserves, helping them to win the Premier Reserve League in 2007–08.

Blackpool

The longer Bruna stayed at Liverpool, the less the club liked him and finally he was released. Bruna then joined Championship side Blackpool on a two-year deal, with an option for a further 12 months, on 17 July 2011. He made his competitive debut as a substitute in the League Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on 11 August 2011. He made his Football League debut in a 2–1 defeat at home to Nottingham Forest on 22 October, coming on as a late substitute. Bruna also played against Burnley away.
