Born in Sarandí, Greater Buenos Aires, De Paul joined Racing Club's youth setup in 2002, aged eight. He was called up to the main squad on 24 June 2012, while still a junior, for a match against Vélez Sarsfield, but remained unused in the 1–2 home loss.
On 10 February 2013, De Paul played his first match as a professional, replacing Mauro Camoranesi in the 76th minute of a 0–3 loss at Atlético de Rafaela. He scored his first goal a month later, netting the last through a long-range shot in a 3–0 win at San Martín de San Juan.
On 9 May 2014, it was announced that Valencia CF agreed to a $6.5 million deal for De Paul with Racing. He signed a five-year deal with Los Che on 6 June, and made his La Liga debut on 23 August, replacing Paco Alcácer in the 65th minute in a 1–1 away draw against Sevilla FC, but being sent off just one minute later due to fouling Aleix Vidal.
