Club career[edit]

Melgar started out at second division club Deportivo Cooper. In 2005, he made his flight top debut with Aurora. In that season, he played in 7 games scoring one goal. The following year he transferred to hometown club Oriente Petrolero, but his appearances during this period were limited as he spent most of the time on the bench. In 2007, he went abroad to play for Venezuelan side Carabobo FC, but shortly after he returned to Oriente where he stayed for the remaining of that year. Subsequently Bolívar signed him for the 2008 season, but the slim opportunities he was given to exposed himself on the field discouraged his continuance in the club. In 2009, he returned to Venezuela and joined Deportivo Anzoátegui.
