Jurado's agent has stressed that the midfielder is unlikely to leave Atletico Madrid this summer, amid speculation linking him with a move to Aston Villa.
The highly-rated 23-year-old been talked about as a possible Villa target since the spring and reports in Spain have now suggested they are still interested.
It is unclear whether Jurado has a future at Atletico after spending the whole of last season on loan at Real Mallorca.
However, Jurado's representative Manuel Garcia Quillon maintains that his client would like to remain at Vicente Calderon and fight for a place.
"Jurado has a deal with Atletico until June 2010 and his priority is to stay with Atletico," said Quillon.
"The summer is long but I view it is a very difficult that he will leave."
