Zaragoza pounce for Pavon.

Real Zaragoza have snapped up Real Madrid defender Francisco Pavon just 24 hours after confirming the capture of Argentina international Roberto Ayala.

Pavon has agreed a four-year deal with Zaragoza after being deemed surplus to requirements at the Santiago Bernabau following the signings of Christoph Metzelder and Pepe.

The 27-year-old, who was linked with a move to Bolton Wanderers earlier this year, came through the youth team ranks at last season's La Liga champions, making more than 100 appearances for the club.

Zaragoza have moved quickly to strengthen their defence after allowing Gabriel Milito to sign for Barcelona earlier this summer.
