Diarte started his career in Olimpia Asunción and at the age of 16 he made his debut in the professional squad, helping Olimpia win the Paraguayan championship in 1971. His speed and goal-scoring skills were soon noticed by teams all around Europe, and in 1973 he signed for Real Zaragoza of Spain where he was part of the famous "Zaraguayos" group (a reference to the Paraguayan stars such as Saturnino Arrua and Felipe Ocampos that were playing for Zaragoza at that time). In 1976, Diarte signed for Valencia CF where he would be part of a formidable attacking line along with Mario Kempes and Johnny Rep. Diarte also played for UD Salamanca (from 1979 to 1980), Real Betis (from 1980 to 1983 where he scored 29 goals in 75 La Liga games) and AS Saint-Étienne of France (from 1983 to 1985).

Colegiales, Guaraní and Olimpia (as assistant coach) from Paraguay. He also managed the Equatorial Guinea national football team before being diagnosed with cancer.
