Alongside Butragueño, Míchel, Sanchís and Martín Vázquez, he formed an unforgettable generation of players known as the Quinta del Buitre. While representing Castilla, Alfredo Di Stéfano handed him his first-team debut in the 1983/84 season and he got his first taste of action on 31 December 1983 in a meeting with Espanyol.
After enjoying a fine season with Zaragoza in 1985/86, he checked back in at Real Madrid, where he shared the dressing room with the likes of Hugo Sánchez, Valdano and Santillana, as well as his teammates who formed the Quinta del Buitre. In the 1986/87 campaign, Pardeza played his part as the team claimed the second of the five consecutive league titles secured between 1986 and 1990.
The following year saw him return to Zaragoza, where he spent most of his career and turned out for the Aragonese outfit for a further 10 seasons. He captured the 1995 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup following victory over Arsenal. He was capped five times by Spain and featured in the 1990 World Cup in Italy.
