Football career

Born in Madrid, Juanfran joined local Getafe CF's youth ranks aged 17, making his senior debuts in 2007 with the reserves in Tercera División. On 12 March 2008 he played his first official game with the first team, coming on as a substitute for Jaime Gavilán in the last minutes of a 1–0 home win against S.L. Benfica for the season's UEFA Cup (3–1 aggregate win); his first La Liga appearance came 11 days later, also from the bench, in a 0–1 loss at Athletic Bilbao.

After one year with Villarreal CF's B-side in Segunda División B, which ended in promotion, a first-ever for the team, Juanfran returned to his hometown and signed with Real Madrid. He spent the vast majority of his first seasons with the club with Real Madrid Castilla, also in the third level.

On 2 May 2010, Juanfran made his debut with Real Madrid's main squad, replacing Fernando Gago in a home league fixture against CA Osasuna, with five minutes to go: the score was then at 2–2, but the Merengues eventually won 3–2 thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo goal.

In early June 2013, Juanfran agreed to join Real Betis on a free transfer. He scored his first goal in the Spanish top flight on 11 May of the following year, in a 4–3 home win over Real Valladolid, but the Andalusians were relegated as dead last.

On 1 September 2014, Juanfran moved to Deportivo de La Coruña in a season-long loan deal and also agreed a contract with Watford, with the latter move being made effective in July 2015 for a fee of around £1.5 million.

Juanfran returned to Dépor on 16 July 2015, on loan for one year. The following summer, even though newspaper La Voz de Galicia initially reported an agreement had been reached to a permanent four-year deal after the English club received a compensation, he was again loaned to the Spaniards who now had a buying option.
