Gonzalo joined Real Madrid's youth system, but could never move past its reserve side. In his country of adoption he only played in the third division, also representing AD Alcorcón, Mérida UD and CF Palencia.
In 2005 Gonzalo moved to the Netherlands, first with AGOVV Apeldoorn, being one of the leading top scorers in the second level season under manager Stanley Menzo. He immediately switched to the Eredivisie after signing with SC Heerenveen, playing his first match in the competition on 10 February 2007 against Vitesse but appearing rarely over the course of two seasons, finishing 2007–08 on loan to Heracles Almelo and helping the club narrowly avoid relegation.
Subsequently Gonzalo signed with FC Groningen, penning a four-year deal with the Euroborg side. First-choice in his debut campaign – 28 matches, four goals – he appeared rarely in 2009–10, being again loaned in the January transfer window, now to VVV-Venlo.
