Camacho was born in Zaragoza, Aragon. Initially starting out at hometown club Real Zaragoza, he was spotted by Atlético 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 Éver 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 season.


2009–10 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 Málaga CF, with teammate Sergio Asenjo also making the move in a loan deal.

Camacho scored his first official goal for Málaga on 29 April 2012, netting from a Jesús Gámez cross for the game's only at home against Valencia CF. He contributed with 13 games and 811 minutes as the Andalusia team 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 Málaga 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).

During his spell at the La Rosaleda Stadium, Camacho played nearly 200 games all competitions comprised.


On 8 July 2017, Camacho signed for Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg for a reported fee of around €10 million.

International career

Camacho captained the Spain under-17 team to the title at the 2007 UEFA European Championship, scoring one goal during the tournament. In 2008, following his performances with Atlético's main squad, he was promoted to the under-21s, but missed the 2009 European Championships through injury.

On 7 November 2014, Camacho was called up to full side manager Vicente del Bosque's squad for matches against Belarus and Germany, making his debut on the 18th against the latter by coming on as a half-time substitute for Sergio Busquets, in an eventual 0–1 friendly loss in Vigo.

Personal life

Camacho's father Juan José was also a footballer, as older brother Juanjo. The latter was also a midfielder, who played for several Segunda División and Segunda División B clubs.
