Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Bianchi's career started in the youth ranks of Estudiantes, before departing to join Peruvian club Universidad San Martín. During one year with the club he won the 2008 Torneo Descentralizado.[3] In 2009, he completed a move to Chilean side Palestino with whom he made 9 appearances for as the team failed to reach the play-offs twice.[1][2] 2010 saw Bianchi make the move out of South America for the first time as he joined Spanish Segunda División B (third tier) club Lemona, however a year later he returned to South America as he signed for Argentine club Douglas Haig. He stayed with Douglas Haig for two years and left in 2012, but departed as the team had just won the Torneo Argentino A and therefore gained promotion into the Primera B Nacional.[1][2]

In July 2012, Bianchi joined Unión. He made his first career appearance in the Argentine Primera División on 10 September in a draw with Tigre.[1][2] After 19 appearances and two goals in the 2012–13 season, he left Unión to sign for another Primera División team, Atlético Tucumán. Between 2013 and 2016, Bianchi has become a regular for the club after making 117 appearances over five seasons in the Primera División and Primera B Nacional respectively; Atlético Tucumán were in Argentina's second tier until 2015 when Bianchi and the club won it to win promotion into the top division.[1][2]
