Matheu made his professional debut in 2004 in Club Atletico Independiente, and soon established himself as a member of the first team squad. In the Apertura 2007 he chipped in with 4 goals in 15 games, a useful return for a defender.
He nearly moved to Lokomotiv Moscow for $3.3million (£1.6million) in July 2008 but chose to play for Cagliari instead. He was now repurchased by Independiente for 1.5 million dollars for the 50% of his rights (Independiente already owned 50%). After one season in Italy, he returned to Independiente.
At the end of the 2011-12 season, Matheu's contract expired and he returned to Italy, signing a contract with Atalanta.
On 30 August 2013, the Siena board announced the loan signing of Matheu until the end of the season.
