A fee of around é¼3 million has been agreed with Murcia, and the 23-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal.
Mallorca finalised a deal with Murcia some weeks ago, but the transfer was held up by Garcia's former club Real Madrid.
The player was brought through the youth ranks at Real, and the capital club still retained a share in the player.
However, the Islanders were given the go-ahead by Madrid to complete the deal and the player has now joined up with his new team-mates.
Garcia is hoping to emulate his achievements of last term when he managed 11 goals despite playing in a Murcia side who were eventually relegated.
"I am an ambitious lad and I want to improve," Garcia declared. "I have my mind focused on improving every day.
"I am eager to get to know my new team-mates and start the new season."
