Born in Arafo, Province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Édgar finished his apprenticeship with Real Madrid and made his senior debut in the 2008-09 season with the C-team, in Tercera División.

In June 2014, Édgar returned to Almería and renewed his contract with the club on 16 August, being definitely promoted to the first-team squad in La Liga. He made his debut in the competition on 23 August, starting and assisting Fernando Soriano in a 1-1 home draw against RCD Espanyol.
On 1 July 2015, Édgar signed a four-year deal with neighbouring Granada CF after suffering relegation with Almería. On 15 July the following year, he terminated his contract after being sparingly used, and joined fellow league team Deportivo Alavés for three years.
On 8 February 2017, in the second leg of the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey, Édgar scored the only goal of the tie against RC Celta de Vigo, qualifying the Basques to the decisive match for the first time in their 91-year history.
