Hugo Duro started grooming himself to become a footballer when he joined Getafe in 2004. Then, he was five-year-old. Due to his talent, his promotion was so rapid that he made his first professional appearance for Getafe on 24 October 2017. He achieved this career feat when his team loss 0-1 to Deportivo Alavés during a Copa del Rey match.

Afterward, he continued his development with the reserve team of Getafe and earned his first professional goal on 19 November 2017 against DAV Santa Ana.

In less than four months later, the Spanish youngster made his first Spanish La Liga appearance when Getafe visited Real Sociedad during the 2017-2018 season.

Just recently, Hugo Duro was invited to Spain Under-21 squad for the first time in his career which means that his country’s national football team believes in him as much as Real Madrid.
