Club career

Espanyol

Having emerged through RCD Espanyol's youth ranks, Soriano made his debut with the first team during 2002–03, on 1 December 2002, playing one minute in a 3–1 La Liga home win against Rayo Vallecano, while still registered with the B side (not being admitted as a fulltime first-team member until 2005–06).

He spent the second halves of that season and the following serving second division loan stints, after which he returned to Catalonia, netting twice in 24 appearances during the season (incidentally in both 1–0 wins over Getafe CF[1][2]).

In late January 2009, Soriano moved again on loan (and in the second level), joining Albacete Balompié until the end of the season, and being released by Espanyol after this spell, his contract not having been renewed.

Barcelona

On 30 July 2009, Soriano returned to Catalonia, joining FC Barcelona's reserves, in division three.[3] He made his first team debut on 28 October 2009, playing the dying minutes of the 2–0 triumph at Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa, for the season's Copa del Rey (7–0 on aggregate)[4]; in the league, he ranked amongst the season's top scorers (all four groups combined) as the club returned to the second division after an 11-year absence.

Soriano fared even better in 2010–11, surpassing the 30-goal mark (32, competition best) as Barcelona B finished in the promotion playoffs zone, being however ineligible for contention.

Red Bull Salzburg

On 19 January 2012, Soriano moved to Austrian Bundesliga team FC Red Bull Salzburg, for a fee of £700,000.[5]
