The Argentine international joined the Primera outfit from Newell's Old Boys in his homeland in 2003.
The 24-year-old originally arrived as a midfielder, but has since been converted into a right back.
Having played over 30 games in the past two seasons, he has once again been a virtual ever-present in Victor Munoz's side this term.
His new deal runs for four-and-a-half years and is reward for his consistent displays over the last couple of years which have also seen him force his way into the Argentine national side.
He has now played a total of 89 times for Zaragoza and is an integral part of the Aragon-based outfit's first-team squad.
