A youth product of Real Zaragoza, Sanjuán was born in Zaragoza, and made his debut for the first team on 24 April 1991 in a 0–1 away loss against Sporting de Gijón. Almost never an undisputed starter for the Aragonese he featured heavily during his seven 1/2 professional seasons with the side, most notably amassing totals of 93 games and four goals in La Liga from 1991 to 1994.
The peak of Sanjuán's time with Zaragoza was winning the 1995 Cup Winners' Cup, in a 2–1 extra time success against Arsenal in Paris – he played 36 minutes in the final, as a substitute. The previous season he had won the Copa del Rey with the club, beating Celta de Vigo on penalties and also featuring from the bench.
Sanjuán had a brief loan spell at English First Division team Wolverhampton Wanderers during autumn 1997, making four league appearances. He also featured three times in that season's League Cup campaign, scoring the winning goal at Fulham.
Being definitely released by Zaragoza in June 1998 Sanjuán also played, in Spain, with Villarreal CF and Córdoba CF. With the former, he faced top level relegation after losing the play-offs to Sevilla FC.
Sanjuán returned to the United Kingdom in 2000, with Scottish side Airdrieonians, as one of a series of Spanish players recruited by manager Steve Archibald. After eight months, amid spiralling financial problems, the club sold him to Kilmarnock where he played two Scottish Premier League seasons, now mostly in a sweeper position, before retiring in 2003.
