Born in Olot, Girona, Catalonia, Canal began his senior career with UE Llagostera in Tercera División, helping it promote for the first time ever to Segunda División B in his only season. In December 2010 he signed with neighbours RCD Espanyol, being assigned to the reserves in the third level.
On 13 December 2011 Canal made his first-team debut, coming on as an 82nd substitute for another club youth graduate, Víctor Álvarez, in a Copa del Rey match against Celta de Vigo (0–0 away draw, 4–2 on aggregate). He continued appearing exclusively for the B-team until his release in June 2012, following which he returned to his first club, now in the third tier.
