De Miguel had a good year as a junior in 1983, when he was an Orange Bowl semifinalist and won the Spanish Championships.[2]

The Spaniard made his first Grand Prix quarterfinal in 1984, at Florence.[2] He also reached the quarterfinals in Madrid the following year.[2]

In 1986 he took part in both the French Open and Wimbledon Championships but lost in the first round at each, to Henri Leconte and then John Sadri.[2] He made his only Grand Slam mixed doubles appearance in that French Open tournament, with Manuela Maleeva.[2] They reached the round of 16.[2] Also that year, he made quarter-finals in Stuttgart, where he had a win over world no. 24 Slobodan Živojinović, and in Barcelona.[2] His best results however came in the doubles.[2] He and Jordi Arrese were doubles champions in the 1986 Bordeaux Open, having months earlier finished runner-up with Jesus Colas in Madrid.[2]

At the 1987 French Open, de Miguel progressed past the opening round of the men's doubles for the only time, partnering Arrese.[2] He lost in the first round of the 1987 Wimbledon Championships to Scott Davis.[2]
