Born in Vigo, Galicia, Mina played youth football with hometown's RC Celta de Vigo, and made his senior debut with the reserves in the 2012–13 season, in Tercera División. On 5 January he signed a professional deal with the club, running until 2018.
Mina made his first-team – and La Liga – debut for them on 16 February 2013, coming on as a substitute for Iago Aspas in the 66th minute of a 1–3 away defeat against Getafe CF. He scored his first top-flight goal on 16 September, but in a 2–3 loss at Athletic Bilbao; at only 17 years, 9 months and 10 days, he became the team's youngest goalscorer in the first division.
On 4 July 2015, Mina moved to fellow league team Valencia CF after agreeing to a six-year deal for a €10 million fee. He scored his first competitive goal for the club on 5 December, netting four minutes from time in a 1–1 home draw against FC Barcelona.
On 18 February 2016, in only the first 45 minutes, Mina scored twice and provided three assists in a UEFA Europa League last-32 tie against SK Rapid Wien, in an eventual 6–0 win also at the Mestalla Stadium (the half-time result was a competition record).
