Camanho was born in Zaragoza, Aragon. Initially starting out at hometown club Real Zaragoza, Camacho was spotted by Atl tico Madrid, and was signed to its youth academy. He made his first-team debut on 1 March 2008, starting, playing 68 minutes and being booked as the Colchoneros won 4 2 at home over FC Barcelona he had just signed his first professional contract two months earlier.
On 3 May 2008, one day shy of his 18th birthday, Camacho scored his first La Liga goal, netting twice in another home success, this time 3 0 against Recreativo de Huelva. After some excellent performances in his first season, he would however spend the following campaign restricted to Copa del Rey matches (he did not make the league's list of 18 in most of the games), with coach Javier Aguirre preferring Portuguese Maniche and new signing ver Banega; this situation would slightly improve in late February 2009 as new coach Abel Resino had a run-in with Maniche, leaving him out of the squad for the remainder of the campaign.
The 2009 10 season did not provide Camacho with the needed opportunities to progress; injured for most of the early part of the season, when healthy, he was mainly utilized in injury time of games. In the following campaign he appeared even more rarely no minutes in the league whatsoever and, in late December 2010, was transferred to M laga CF, with teammate Sergio Asenjo also making the move in a loan deal.
Camacho scored his first official goal for M laga on 29 April 2012, netting from a Jes s G mez cross for the game's only goal at home against Valencia CF. He contributed with 13 games and 811 minutes as the Andalusia outfit finished fourth and qualified to the UEFA Champions League for the first time ever.
In 2012 13, Camacho started regularly for the Manuel Pellegrini-led side. In January 2013 he was a central figure in two of the three contests between M laga and Barcelona: on the 13th, his backpass turned into an assist for Lionel Messi for the first in an eventual 1 3 home loss; three days later he scored in the last minute to earn his team, by then reduced to ten men, a 2 2 draw at the Camp Nou for the season's domestic cup (4 6 aggregate loss).
