José Manuel Jurado Marín (born 29 June 1986) is a Spanish footballer who plays for FC Spartak Moscow in the Russian Premier League, as an attacking midfielder. He possesses good playmaking and dribbling skills and has a very effective shot off the dribble.
He made his official debut for the main squad on 29 October 2005 in a 2–0 away win against Real Betis, and would make five first-team appearances overall, also fielding against Olympiacos F.C. in the season's UEFA Champions League.
On 4 August 2006 Jurado moved to city rivals Atlético Madrid for a reported fee of €3 million, signing a four-year contract. However, like with Álvaro Arbeloa before him, Real Madrid included a "special clause" in Jurado's contract, having the option of buying him back at the end of the 2007–08 campaign for €6 million.
After playing in 33 league games in the 2006–07 season, mainly due to serious injuries to teammates Maxi Rodríguez and Martin Petrov, Jurado appeared sparingly in the following season, and was loaned to RCD Mallorca in July 2008. After outstanding performances during 2008–09 and finishing the campaign as the Balearic Islands side's second top scorer, he was recalled by the Colchoneros.
On 10 November 2009 Jurado put pen to paper a new contract with Atlético, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2013. He celebrated his new deal by scoring the opening goal of the 6–0 success in the Copa del Rey over UD Marbella, in the same evening.
During the 2009–10 season, Jurado – still not an undisputed starter for Atlético Madrid – was the player with the most official matches for the club, with a total of 64. He also netted in double digits overall, as the side reached the finals of both the Copa del Rey and the UEFA Europa League.
Jurado started the 2010–11 campaign playing eight minutes in the UEFA Super Cup win against Inter Milan. On 30 August, he opened the scoring as Atlético defeated Sporting de Gijón 4–0 at home; however, the following day, he was transferred to FC Schalke 04 in Germany for €13 million, reuniting with former Real Madrid teammate Raúl.
On 4 December 2010 Jurado scored his first goal for Schalke, helping to a 2–0 home win against FC Bayern Munich. The following game he netted the first in a 2–1 win at S.L. Benfica – after a chest pass from Raúl – for the Champions League group stage, which earned the club the first position after the final round;the roles reversed in the quarterfinals second leg 2–1 home triumph against Inter (7–3 on aggregate), as the midfielder assisted the forward in the opening goal.
Jurado played for Spain at under-16, under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels, and represented the nation at the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Championship and the 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship.
