The enterprising and attacking Sabadell-born youngster had some adaptation time in England before getting regular appearances. He scored on his Under-18s debut in a friendly against West Brom and enjoyed his first taste of league action as a substitute against Derby County. Marc signed a professional contract at United in April 2021.
Jurado has since become one of the most consistent performers in Travis Binnion’s U18s side, starting the vast majority of the 2021/22 league fixtures. He has also played a key role in runs to the UEFA Youth League quarter-finals and FA Youth Cup final, starting every game in both of those competitions.
Binnion has given the 18-year-old a couple of opportunities to play in a new midfield role at the back-end of the recent season, and Jurado has also worn the captain’s armband. Up in the U23s, he made eight appearances over the course of the season, the majority of those coming in October and November 2021.
