Early career

Munteanu started his professional career at the age of twenty with the local club West Petrom Arad, in the Romanian Liga III. He spent a year playing for his home side.

FC Bihor

He was soon noticed by Liga II club FC Bihor Oradea who bought him from Petrom Arad. Here, Munteanu quickly established himself in the starting eleven and he spent four and a half years with the team, also playing in the 2003–04 Liga I.

MFC Sopron

In the summer of 2005 Munteanu moved to MFC Sopron in the first division of Hungary. Due to financial problems, he left after two season and 35 matches.

Politehnica Iaşi

On July 1, 2007, he was bought by Politehnica Iaşi for a fee of €50,000. Here he rejoined his former coach at FC Bihor, Ionuţ Popa. Munteanu immediately imposed himself in the starting lineup, and he stayed there until the end of the 2009–10 Liga I season when Poli were relegated to the Liga II.


In the summer of 2014, he returned to Iași, signing a contract with CSMS.
