Soldevilla was born in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona, Catalonia. Brought through the ranks of RCD Espanyol, he made his first-team debut on 19 February 1997 in a 0–2 La Liga home loss against Athletic Bilbao, being sent off in the game; he would make 133 official appearances for the club with four goals, eventually becoming first-choice while partnering fellow youth graduate Alberto Lopo in the centre, and also going on to captain the squad.

However, Soldevilla grew unsettled and left it in 2005, citing personal reasons – he had already spent several months away from the game during the 2003–04 season. He signed for second division side Polideportivo Ejido midway through 2005–06, where he played only a handful of matches.

After an unsuccessful trial with Ipswich Town and starting off 2006–07 in Cyprus with Apollon Limassol, Soldevilla became the first Spanish player in the Russian Premier League, signing for FC Amkar Perm for the start of the 2007 season. He was released in early March 2008.

In mid-December 2009, Soldevilla signed with UD Marbella in the third level following a one-month trial. He split the following season also in that tier, totalling 20 appearances with Caravaca CF and Ontinyent CF combined.
