Born in Mercedes, Silva finished his youth formation in Danubio FC's youth category, making his professional debut on 13 September 2009, against Liverpool FC. His first career goal came on 5 December, in a 2–0 home win over Central Español.
On 24 July 2010, Silva signed a contract with UD Almería, for an undisclosed fee. He made his La Liga debut on 18 September 2010, in a 0–1 away defeat against RCD Espanyol. He scored his first goal abroad on 5 February 2011, in a 3–2 home win against Espanyol.
In February 2012, after failing to retain a starting spot, Silva was loaned to Peñarol. He scored twice in only 11 league appearances for the Uruguayan giants, also appearing in that year's Copa Libertadores.
Silva appeared 23 times in the 2012–13 season (20 in the league, 1679 minutes of action), netting against CE Sabadell FC and being, however, used mostly as a backup to Ángel Trujillo, Álvaro Mejía and Hernán Pellerano, as the Andalusians were promoted in the play-offs. He only appeared in six matches in the following season, only contributing with 114 minutes in the league.
On 1 August 2014 Silva rescinded his link with the rojiblancos, and signed a one-year deal with UD Las Palmas hours later. On 22 July of the following year he moved to Real Valladolid also in the second level.
