Born in Montevideo, Pírez joined hometown Defensor Sporting's youth categories in 2004, aged 11. On 4 August 2008 he was invited to a trial period at Chelsea F.C., and after impressing during his stay he was granted a scholarship deal with the club.
However, due to FIFA regulations, Pírez was not allowed to play in England before his eighteenth birthday. He subsequently returned to Defensor, now in a loan deal.
In 2010 summer Pírez was promoted to Defensor's first team, but due to appendicitis, missed half of the season. On 5 February 2011, he made his professional debut, against River Plate, replacing David Texeira in the 76th minute and netting a last-minute goal of a 4–1 home routing.
On 10 August 2013, Pírez extended his loan stay at CD Leganés loan with the Madrid side for another campaign, which ended in promotion, with the player appearing in 19 matches, mainly as a substitute. On 23 May 2014 he was released by Chelsea.
