Born in Águilas, Region of Murcia, Chumbi started playing as a senior with Atlético Madrid's C-team. In the 2009 summer he joined Caravaca CF in the third division but, in the following transfer window, returned to the fourth level by signing with Lorca Deportiva CF.
In July 2010 Chumbi moved to CF Reus Deportiu still in division four. In his first season he scored twelve goals (three of them in the play-offs), helping the Catalans return to the third division after five years.
In January 2012 Chumbi was linked with a move to Elche CF, but the deal could not be completed. On 20 June he signed a contract with UD Almería, being assigned to the reserves in the third level.
On 17 October 2012 Chumbi made his debut with Almería's first team, coming off the bench for Jonathan in the 83rd minute of a 3–0 home win against AD Alcorcón for the season's Copa del Rey. Two months later he made his first appearance in division two, replacing Ángel Trujillo in a 0–1 defeat at Elche CF; on 6 January of the following year he netted his first goal as a professional, being pivotal in the Andalusians' 1–0 away win against Girona FC after only six minutes on the field.
