Born in Madrid, Juan Carlos started his football career at the EFMO Boadilla academy, spending 11 years there from the age of six. In 2007, Real Madrid signed him to their youth system.
After two years, Juan Carlos was promoted to Real Madrid Castilla, going on to spend two full Segunda División B seasons with them. His first goal with the reserves came on 8 November 2009, in a 4–2 home win against Gimnástica de Torrelavega. On 28 September 2010, he was called up for a UEFA Champions League group stage match at AJ Auxerre, but eventually did not leave the bench in the 1–0 victory.
On 3 October 2010, Juan Carlos finally made his first appearance for Real's first team, playing 11 minutes in place of Ángel Di María in a 6–1 La Liga home rout of Deportivo de La Coruña. He added 32 games and three goals for the B side, which eventually fell short in the promotion playoffs.
On 7 July 2011, Juan Carlos signed with fellow top-flight club Real Zaragoza from third-party owner Quality Sports Investments, via S.C. Braga. On 22 September, he came on as a second-half substitute in an away fixture against Real Betis with the score at 4–1 for the hosts, and scored two goals in two minutes which eventually amounted to nothing, as the Aragonese lost 4–3.
Juan Carlos was subsequently loaned to Betis, Granada CF and Málaga CF, all in the top division. On 19 July 2017, he joined the latter side on a permanent four-year contract.
During his spell at the La Rosaleda Stadium, Juan Carlos was often hindered by injury problems. On 9 September 2020, the 30-year-old signed a two-year deal with Greek club Panathinaikos F.C. for an undisclosed fee.
