Born in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, Barcelona, Catalonia, Moreno graduated from local FC Vilafranca's youth system, making his senior debuts in 2010–11 in Tercera División. He signed with FC Barcelona in April 2011, being assigned to the youth team; despite being a regular starter, he was released at the end of the season.
On 4 July 2013, Moreno moved to RCD Mallorca, freshly relegated to the second level. He played his first professional match on 18 August, in a 0–4 away loss against CE Sabadell FC for the Segunda División championship.
On 4 January of the following year, Moreno scored his first professional goal, the last in a 2–2 draw at UD Las Palmas. He featured regularly during the season, as his team narrowly avoided another drop.
On 13 August 2015, Moreno was loaned to Elche in the second tier for one year.
