The 23-year-old midfielder has signed a four-year contract with Víctor Fernández's team. He has made 47 appearances for Atlético since breaking through to the first team at the start of last season. A former academy player in the Spanish capital, Gabi's contract was due to expire in June 2008 but Zaragoza are thought to have triggered a €9m buy-out clause, and he will join them on 1 July.
