Born in Madrid, Borja arrived in his hometown club Atlético Madrid's youth system aged four. He began as a goalkeeper, the position which his father played professionally, but he converted him to a forward so that he could enjoy the game more. He made his senior debuts in the 2009–10 season, scoring 12 goals for the reserve team in the third division.
On 15 May 2010, in the campaign's last round, Borja made his first-team and La Liga debut, coming on as a substitute for Tiago Mendes in the 58th minute of the game against Getafe CF. Twenty minutes later, however, he was stretchered off with a serious anterior cruciate ligament injury on his left knee, in an eventual 0–3 home loss.
Seven months after his injury, Borja re-appeared with Atlético B, as a substitute in a 1–0 win over CP Cacereño. After the match, he stated: "I'm very happy. I've passed really bad times and I've suffered, but now I'm prepared to help the team go up in the league table."
In late August 2011 Borja was loaned to Real Murcia, freshly promoted to the second level. On 30 August of the following year he moved to SD Huesca also in a temporary deal, scoring nine times for the latter during the season as it ended in relegation.
On 28 August 2013, Borja joined Deportivo de La Coruña on a two-year loan. After scoring ten goals as his side returned to the main category at first attempt, he moved to fellow second tier club Real Zaragoza also in a temporary deal.
