Raúl García is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Athletic Bilbao.

Born in Pamplona, Navarre, García finished his development with local club Osasuna, making his senior debuts with the B-team in 2002. In the following year he helped the side promote to Segunda División B, and made his first-team – and La Liga – debut on 3 May 2003, coming on as a late substitute in a 1–1 away draw against Real Zaragoza.

García scored his first professional goal on 29 November 2003, netting the game’s only in a home success over Albacete Balompié. He became an undisputed starter during the 2004–05 campaign, scoring eight goals in 35 appearances.

In 2006, García signed for Atlético Madrid, being an important midfield unit during his spell but also being plagued by injuries. On 28 August 2009 he was loaned to Real Zaragoza, with the Colchoneros having an option to buy half of his federative rights at the end of the season.

García continued to be an important first-team member for Zaragoza in the following years, winning the Copa del Rey in 2010 and being regularly used by managers Manolo Jiménez and Javier Aguirre. On 26 June 2013, after the Aragonese club’s relegation, he was bought outright by Athletic Bilbao.

García helped the Basques win the 2015 Supercopa de España, starting in both legs of the final against Barcelona. On 19 August of that year he scored a brace in a 3–2 home win against Schalke 04 for the UEFA Europa League.

In September 2015, García was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He recovered fully from the disease, and returned to action on 13 February 2016 by starting in a 1–1 home draw against Deportivo de La Coruña for the campaign’s Copa del Rey.
