Juan Manuel Arostegui (born 2 December 1980 in San Francisco, Córdoba) is a professional Argentine football (soccer) player and currently plays for Aldosivi in Primera B Nacional. He most famously played for Boca Juniors as well as the Argentina Youth World Cup team alongside the likes of Juan Roman Riquelme, and Juan Sebastian Veron.

Arostegui is also a legend in Malaysia football history, being a former player for MPPJ FC in the Malaysian Super League. With the club he scored an astounding 50 goals for MPPJ FC in all competitions in the 2003 season. This was capped off by a brilliant hattrick in the 3-0 win against Sabah FA in the 2003 Malaysia Cup final held in National Stadium, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.

The win earned the Petaling Jaya club the accolade of being the only football club in Malaysia to ever win the prestigious Malaysia Cup trophy (all previous winners were state sides of Malaysia).
