Born in Valencia, Valencian Community, Gavilán was a Valencia CF youth product. He made his first-team – and La Liga – debut one month shy of his 18th birthday, playing 12 minutes in a 0–1 away defeat against Real Valladolid on 19 April 2003. He also spent two full seasons with the B-side, in the third division.

Gavilán was gradually breaking into the main squad after two loans (CD Tenerife – second level – and Getafe CF), even though he had to battle for that position with the gifted (although tremendously injury-prone) Vicente. However, after the arrival of new boss Ronald Koeman in November 2007, he was deemed surplus to requirements and was loaned again to Getafe, until the end of the season; the previous campaign, he suffered a serious knee ligament injury which kept him out of action for a period of six months.

In his second spell with the Madrid outskirts side, Gavilán appeared prominently during half-a-season, netting in a 2–1 home win over Racing de Santander on 16 March 2008. He was also part of the team's quarterfinal run in the UEFA Cup, playing in three matches, all as a starter.


On 15 July 2008, Gavilán signed a four-year deal with Getafe, thus losing all ties to Valencia. During his first full season he was an everpresent midfield fixture and, on 12 April 2009, he scored the game's only goal in an important win at Sevilla FC.

In 2009–10, Gavilán featured in 27 league games (no goals) as Getafe qualified for the second time ever for Europe, after finishing in sixth position. On 6 March 2011, in the last minutes of the first half of a 0–2 away defeat against Sporting de Gijón, he suffered the same injury to his knee, being sidelined for the rest of the campaign.


Free agent Gavilán joined fellow top division club Levante UD in June 2014, signing a two-year contract with an option to extend for a further year. On 30 January 2015, after appearing in only six competitive matches, he severed his link.

Later years

After a brief spell in Greece with Platanias FC, Gavilán signed for Indian Super League side Atlético de Kolkata on 18 June 2015.
