Born in Rosario, Uruguay, Brugman began playing football in Peñarol's youth system. He moved to Italy to join Empoli in 2007. He made his debut in Empoli's 0–1 defeat to Modena coming on as 58th-minute substitute replacing Riccardo Nardini.
Pescara and loans
In the summer of 2012 he moved to Serie A club Pescara. The following January he was sent on loan to Grosseto in Serie B. In the 2013-14 season, coach Pasquale Marino made him a regular starter at Pescara, who had been relegated to Serie B. Having further blossomed under coach Serse Cosmi Brugman's play was likened to that of Andrea Pirlo and former Pescara player Marco Verratti. In the summer of 2014 he was close to a transfer to Villareal which, however, was cancelled due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
