Club careerEdit

Bautista was born in Mahón, Menorca, Balearic Islands, but moved to Errenteria, Gipuzkoa, Basque Country at a young age.[1] He was a Real Sociedad youth graduate after starting out at Touring KE,[2] and was promoted to the former's reserve team in Segunda División B on 23 June 2014[3] having made several appearances in that season's UEFA Youth League.[4][5]

Bautista made his senior debut on 23 August 2014, coming on as a late substitute for Eneko Capilla in a 3–3 home draw against UB Conquense for the Segunda División B championship.[6] He scored his first senior goal on 27 September, netting the first in a 4–0 home routing of CD Guadalajara.[7]

On 25 February 2016, Bautista renewed his contract until 2020.[8] He appeared in his first competitive match – and in La Liga – on 24 April, replacing fellow youth graduate Mikel Oyarzabal in the dying minutes of a 0–0 away draw against Villarreal CF.[9]

Bautista scored his first professional goal on 8 May 2016, netting the winner in a 2–1 home win over Rayo Vallecano.[10] Ahead of the 2017–18 season, he was definitively promoted to the main squad.

On 11 July 2019, after being used mainly as a backup to Willian José, Bautista was loaned to Belgian side K.A.S. Eupen, for one year.[11]
