Born in Binissalem, Majorca, Moyà made his professional debut with hometown RCD Mallorca on 29 August 2004 in a 0–1 home loss against Real Madrid, appearing in 32 La Liga games for a team that barely avoided relegation (17th). After backing up another youth system product, veteran Toni Prats, for two years, he became the undisputed starter.
In late June 2009, Moyà agreed on a move to fellow top division club Valencia CF for about €5 million. On 5 August, in a 0–2 preseason defeat at Manchester United, he featured more than 30 minutes as central midfielder after all the replacements had been made by Unai Emery and an injury occurred; the score was then at 0–1.
On 15 June 2011, Moyà joined Getafe CF on loan as part of the deal involving Daniel Parejo. At the end of the campaign, in which he only missed two league games as the Madrid outskirts team again retained their division status, he signed a permanent four-year contract.
On 4 June 2014, Moyà signed a three-year contract with league champions Atlético Madrid, for a reported fee of €3 million. During his presentation on the following day, he said: "What better moment than this one to arrive, the demands will be strong but when a football player is born, he wishes to be in a club such as this one. Atlético de Madrid is one of Europe's greatest teams and has clearly demonstrated it".
Moyà made his competitive debut in the first leg of the 2014 Supercopa de España on 19 August, a 1–1 draw at Real Madrid. He remained a starter until the final stretch of the season but, after suffering an injury to his left thigh in a UEFA Champions League game against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, he lost his position to Jan Oblak, going on to be restricted to Copa del Rey matches.
