Blanco began in Pachuca's youth division teams and then was transferred on loan for Indios de Ciudad Juárez in the 2007 Season after having a good performance during the U-20 World Cup in Canada in 2006.
Blanco arrived to Indios as one of the main bookings for the season but after 4 games and receiving 10 goals he was relegated to the bench for the rest of the season. Indios managed to qualify for the Liguilla in Apertura 2007 and due to an injury from the goalie Joel Barba, Blanco returned to the first team and helped the team get to the finals.
Though he did not make his debut in the Primera División with Pachuca, there were already offers for Blanco from European clubs from Spain, Greece and Holland but in the end, he settled with Cruz Azul. After Óscar Pérez's controversial signing with Tigres, Cruz Azul brought Blanco, possibly, to be a substitute of Yosgart Gutiérrez, the Goalkeeper who took Perez's spot. He played the rest of Clausura 2009 as the Cruz Azul starter goalkeeper but the team finished in the last place of the table. On June 19, 2009, he was signed by Deportivo Irapuato. Later he joined Club León.
Before starting Clausura 2012, it was announced he would play for his original club, Pachuca.
