A product of Villarreal CF's youth system, skilled Marcos made his first team debut on 24 September 2006, in a 3–2 home win over Real Zaragoza. During the season, he would be an important offensive weapon for the fifth-placed team in La Liga and, in two starts, scored goals in home wins against Real Madrid (1–0) and FC Barcelona (2–0), playing 90 minutes on both occasions.
However, Marcos would be loaned for 2007–08 to fellow first division side Recreativo de Huelva, where he only appeared in half of the season's matches, with a goal against Real Murcia (4–2 home win).
He returned to Villarreal, only to be immediately loaned again, to Segunda División outfit Real Sociedad. He featured heavily during this spell, but the Basque failed to achieve a top flight return.
In late July 2009, Villarreal released Marcos, whom immediately signed a four-year contract with fellow league side Real Valladolid, as well as former Villarreal teammate César Arzo. On 17 October he netted again against Real Madrid, albeit in a 2–4 away defeat, but appeared sparingly throughout the season as the Castile and León side was relegated eventually.
Marcos returned to Villarreal in the 2010 summer, on loan, but was assigned to the reserve squad, in division two.

“In this dream that dogs me I am part
Of a silent crowd walking under a wall,
Leaving a football match, perhaps, or a pit,
All moving the same way.”
