Fran joined United from the ranks of Valencia CF Mestalla (Valencia B) in his native Spain. He had started his career in the youths at CD Leganes, moving to CD Coslada and then CD Toledo. He had also been on loan at CD Onda. As 2008-09 progressed, he became an influential front player and ended the season as top scorer. In the next campaign he spent much of his time out through injury and left at the end of the season, joining Brighton & Hove Albion.
