After starting his football formation with Hércules CF, Montoya finished it with neighbouring Valencia CF, going on to spend five years with the latter's B-team, in the third division. In 2000–01 he made his La Liga debuts, appearing rarely for CD Numancia in a relegation-ending season.
Subsequently, Montoya played seven years in the second level, with Real Jaén, Elche CF, Ciudad de Murcia and Granada 74 CF. In his debut campaign at the latter he suffered a serious injury which sidelined him for several months, as the club suffered relegation.
In 2009–10, Montoya played for Atlético Ciudad and Orihuela CF, both in division three and both undergoing institutional and economic problems. For the following season, he joined CF La Nucía in the fourth tier.
Montoya represented Spain at the 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship in Malaysia, playing four games for the eventual quarter-finalists in a squad which also featured Valencia youth graduates David Albelda, Miguel Ángel Angulo and Javier Farinós.
