In August 2007, Real Madrid signed Bueno on a professional contract with the first team. He was called up to the pre-season training under coach Bernd Schuster, teaming up in a friendly with FC Lokomotiv Moscow where he was substituted at half-time by another cantera player, Javier Balboa.

On 11 November 2008, due to many injuries to the main squad, Bueno was given his official debut, in a Copa del Rey home contest against Real Unión (third level): within minutes of his entry, 15 minutes into the second half, he scored in a 4–3 final win, but Real Madrid suffered a shock exit from the competition (6–6 aggregate). Eleven days later he made his La Liga debut, replacing Raúl late into a 1–0 home success over Recreativo de Huelva.


On 15 July 2009, Real Valladolid purchased Bueno on a five-year deal, with Real Madrid having an option to repurchase during the first two. During his first season he was used intermittently, as the Castile and León side also suffered top flight relegation.

On 30 August 2010, English club Derby County announced that Bueno was a guest at the Rams' 2–2 draw against Queens Park Rangers, and that a loan deal was very close to being completed in time for the close of the transfer window. It was revealed the following day that the player signed on a season-long loan.

After making his debut as a substitute in a 0–1 home loss against Sheffield United, and his first start in a 0–2 defeat at Hull City, Bueno helped spark a run of six unbeaten matches, as Derby earned 14 points from a possible 18 – after just one win in the first four games – earning praise from first-team coach Gary Crosby, who said: "Alberto is a natural footballer – his awareness, his touch and his ability are outstanding at times."

Playing as one of three support strikers in Derby's 4–2–3–1 formation, Bueno grabbed his first goals for the club with a brace against Crystal Palace, and followed it up with the second in a 3–0 win over Preston North End, earning the man of the match award in both games. His form was such he was linked with a move to Premier League side Wigan Athletic, but Derby dismissed the link, stating "There is no clause in the loan agreement which allows (Bueno) to leave during the January transfer window."

After a promising start, Bueno, and the team as a whole, faded throughout the rest of the campaign, winning just four of 26 league games and dropping from fourth in the table to 19th. He contributed with only two goals in the final seven months, in defeats against Ipswich Town and Norwich City, and at the end of the season Clough stated himself "unsure" over the player's future, saying his signature was "not a priority".

Bueno subsequently returned to Valladolid, scoring seven times from 32 appearances to help it return to the top flight after two years. He added five in the following season, in an eventual safe escape from relegation.

Rayo Vallecano

Bueno signed with Rayo Vallecano in the 2013 summer, for two years. On 28 February 2015, he scored four goals in only 14 minutes in a 4–2 league home win over Levante UD, being the second fastest to accomplish this feat after Bebeto in 1995.


On 25 May 2015, free agent Bueno signed with FC Porto for five years, joining a host of compatriots at the Portuguese club including manager Julen Lopetegui. He spent most of his first season on the sidelines, due to a meniscus injury.

On 31 August 2016, Bueno returned to Spain and its first division after agreeing to a one-year loan deal at Granada CF. He scored his only goal for the team on 16 September, in a 2–2 draw at neighbouring Real Betis.

Bueno went back to his hometown on 31 January 2017, as he joined CD Leganés halfway through their debut top-flight campaign.

International career

Bueno was part of the Spain under-19 team which won the 2006 UEFA European Championship. He was the top scorer of the competition with five goals, with another Real Madrid product, Juan Mata, adding four.

Subsequently, Bueno represented the nation at the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada.
