Pablo Javier Pérez (born 10 August 1985) is an Argentine footballer who plays for Boca Juniors as a central midfielder.


Born in Rosario, Pérez graduated from Newell's Old Boys' youth setup, and made his professional debut on 2 December 2006, in a 2-2 draw with Godoy Cruz.[1] On 26 May of the following year, he scored his first goals as a professional, netting a hat-trick in a 4-4 draw with Estudiantes.[2]

On 31 July 2009 Pérez moved abroad for the first time in his career, joining Ecuadorian Serie A side Emelec on loan until the end of the season.[3] During his spell, he scored a goal from the midfield on 17 September, the last of a 4–0 home success against ESPOLI.[4]

On 12 July 2010 Pérez moved to Unión de Santa Fe also in a temporary deal.[5] After appearing in 31 matches and scoring three goals during his only season, he returned to Newell's in June 2011.

Pérez scored eight goals in his return campaign, and appeared regularly in the following two seasons, also being a part of the squad which won the 2013 Torneo Final. He also appeared in 2013 Copa Libertadores, but missed his side's last game due to suspension.[6]

On 8 January 2014, Pérez joined La Liga side Málaga CF on a three-and-a-half year deal.[7] He made his debut in the competition on the 17th, replacing Samu in a 0–0 home draw against Valencia CF.[8]

Pérez scored his first goal for the Andalusians on 25 March, but in a 1–2 home loss against RCD Espanyol.[9]

On 1 September 2015 Boca Juniors bought Perez on a deal until 2019.
