A defensive midfielder, most of his professional career was spent in Spain where he played for five teams – amassing La Liga totals of 76 games and four goals and 137/5 in Segunda División – subsequently coaching in its lower leagues.
Born in the country's capital, Montevideo, Correa played six years with local Club Atlético River Plate, moving in 1989 for another side in the city, national powerhouse C.A. Peñarol. After just one season he moved abroad, joining Spain's Real Murcia in the country's second division and dropping down to the third level in his second year, due to irregularities.
In the 1993 summer, Correa moved straight into La Liga with Real Valladolid, his competition debut coming on 5 September in a 0–1 home loss against Sporting de Gijón. In the following four years, he would bounce back and forth between divisions one and two with CP Mérida.
Correa signed with Sevilla FC in the 1998 summer, at the age of 30. In August of the following year he suffered a serious Achilles tendon injury which would put him out of action for more than one year, after which he made a brief comeback with his fifth club in Spain, Hércules CF (third division), retiring shortly after.
In 2005, Correa started his coaching career, first with the youth sides then as assistant to former club Murcia. He coached the team for exactly one game in the 2005–06 season before they appointed Sergije Krešić, with the Uruguayan returning to the youth levels.
Correa made 19 appearances for Uruguay during two years, representing the nation at the 1990 FIFA World Cup (one match) and the 1989 Copa América. His debut came on 2 November 1988 in a friendly with Chile; he was sent off in the 1–1 draw at Concepción.
