Born in Madrid, Álex joined Real Madrid's youth system at not yet 13, arriving from neighbouring RSD Alcalá. In 2010 he started appearing with Real Madrid Castilla in Segunda División B and, in July of that year, he was called by first-team coach José Mourinho to a preseason tour in the United States; he made his unofficial debut on 5 August in a friendly match against Club América (3–2 win), with his brother Nacho also making his first appearance that day.
Álex made his league debut with the B-team on 29 August 2010, playing 87 minutes in a 3–2 home win against Coruxo FC. On 3 October he scored his first goal, contributing to a 3–0 home success over AD Cerro de Reyes, and finished his first season with 30 games and two goals as the team fell short in the promotion playoffs.
On 6 March 2011 Álex made his La Liga debut, playing the last minute of the 3–1 win at Racing de Santander. He contributed with 35 appearances in the 2011–12 campaign – playoffs included – with Castilla returning to the second level after five years.
