Cristian played for several clubs as a youth, including local Crevillente Deportivo and Alicante CF. He made his debuts for the latter's first team during the 2007–08 season, as the Valencian Community side returned to the second division after a 50-year absence.
In the following year Cristian continued playing mostly with the reserves in the fourth level, with the main side finally being relegated. He made his division two debut in a game against Hércules CF on 6 June 2009, one of only two appearances in the category.
Cristian signed for Real Madrid Castilla in the 2009 summer, with Real Madrid's reserves in the third division. He finished his first season with ten goals – second-best in the squad – as the team finished eighth in the league.
In January 2011, Cristian signed for Valencia CF's B-team in the fourth level, in a season-long loan. He scored in double digits as the Che reserves returned to the "bronze category" at the first attempt.
