Pedro Mosquera Parada (born 21 April 1988) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for SD Huesca mainly as a defensive midfielder.

Born in A Coruña, Galicia, Mosquera played roller hockey for his high school team in neighbouring Santa María del Mar. In 2000, at the age of 12, he arrived in Real Madrid’s youth system. He started out as a professional in 2006–07’s Segunda División – four games, 84 minutes, team relegation.

On 24 January 2010, Mosquera was called to the first team for a match against Málaga CF, but did not leave the bench. Two months and one day later he made his La Liga debut, playing one minute in a 4–2 away win over Getafe CF after replacing Xabi Alonso.

Mosquera signed precisely with Getafe on 12 July 2010, penning a five-year contract and reuniting with former Real Madrid Castilla coach Míchel. He made his debut for the club 16 days later, scoring against Germany’s VfL Osnabrück.

On 20 January 2012, after not playing one single minute under new manager Luis García in the season, Mosquera agreed to return to Castilla, with the team in the Segunda División B. In summer 2014, after a further top-flight campaign with Getafe, he joined fellow league side Elche CF on a three-year contract. He scored his first goal in the Spanish top tier on 14 September while at the service of the latter, contributing to a 3–2 away victory over Rayo Vallecano.

Mosquera cut ties with the Valencians on 27 July 2015, and signed a four-year deal with Deportivo de La Coruña hours later. He played 37 matches in his first season, helping to a final 15th position in the table.

On 2 August 2019, Mosquera terminated his contract at the Estadio Riazor and joined SD Huesca for two years the following day.
