Goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez Gago has joined Zaragoza for a second stint after the Spanish club struck a ?8.6 million ($12.3 million) deal with Benfica.

Zaragoza announced late Monday that the 25-year-old Spanish keeper had signed a five-year contract.

Roberto spent the 2009-2010 season on loan at Zaragoza before Atletico Madrid sold him to Benfica for a reported ?8.5 million ($12.1 million) last summer.

Zaragoza opens the season at Levante on Aug. 21.

Last season, Zaragoza struggled to avoid relegation and finished in 13th place, two points above the drop.
