Football careerEdit

Sastre was born in Binissalem, Majorca, Balearic Islands. He emerged through FC Barcelona's youth ranks, but only represented its B and C-teams.[1]

Acquired by Real Zaragoza in 2007, Sastre moved immediately to another club, Aragonese neighbours SD Huesca, helping it promote to the second division in his first season – a first-ever – and easily retain its status in the following campaign. His first game as a professional took place on 31 August 2008, as he featured the full 90 minutes in a 2–2 home draw against CD Castellón.[2]

In summer 2012, Sastre signed a three-year contract with Real Valladolid.[3] He made his La Liga debut on 20 August, coming on as a 78th-minute substitute for Álvaro Rubio in a 1–0 away win over Real Zaragoza;[4] he finished the season with 29 games (13 starts) and one goal,[5] helping his team finish 14th and thus escape relegation.

After dropping down a level in 2014, Sastre continued competing in the second level, with Valladolid and CD Leganés.[6] With the latter, he achieved promotion to the top flight in 2016.

On 29 December 2016, Sastre terminated his contract with Lega[7] and signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Huesca.[8]

Personal lifeEdit

Sastre's older brother, Rafel (ten years his senior), was also a footballer. A defender, he played mainly for Sporting de Gijón, and they coincided at Huesca in 2011–12.[9]
