Born in Albacete, Castile-La Mancha, Perea was a product of hometown Albacete Balompié's youth ranks. He made his debut with the first team on 17 January 2009, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 0–3 home defeat against Hércules CF in the second division. On 21 May he was transferred to Atlético Madrid, spending his first season with the Colchoneros' B-team in the third level.
Good form earned Perea a promotion to the first team for the 2010–11 pre-season, scoring in his first appearance with the main squad against Madrid neighbours RSD Alcalá (8–2 win), and against Real Betis (2–1) the following week. On 27 October 2010 he played his first official game for Atlético, replacing Raúl García in a 5–0 win at Universidad de Las Palmas CF for the campaign's Copa del Rey round-of-32 first leg; two weeks later, as everything was already decided, he started in the second match, a 1–1 draw at the Vicente Calderón Stadium.
On 12 July 2011, Perea transferred to another side in the Community of Madrid, signing a three-year deal with Rayo Vallecano, freshly returned to La Liga, and initially being assigned to the B-side in division three. Benefitting from several injuries to the main squad, he made his debut in the top flight on 22 January 2012, playing ten minutes in a 0–1 home loss against RCD Mallorca.
In the following years, Perea alternated between the second and third tiers, representing UE Llagostera, UE Olot and FC Barcelona B. On 17 July 2017, the free agent signed a three-year contract with Cádiz CF in the former tournament.
On 1 February 2019, Perea was loaned to Extremadura UD for six months. On December 22, 2019 he renewed the contract with Cádiz CF until June 30, 2023. Perea commented the signing making a nod to the club legend Mágico González: "Carranza is a land of magicians, and I want to give up my magic until 2023".
