Gabri has confirmed he is leaving Barcelona after a seven-year spell in the first team picture at Camp Nou.
The versatile midfielder has recovered from a knee injury and has had to play second fiddle to Juliano Belletti recently.
Nevertheless, Gabri is looking forward to the UEFA Champions League final against Arsenal in Paris, and has already been linked with several clubs in England.
"I think the moment has come to put an end to this stage of my career," the 27-year-old told Barcelona's official website.
"But, wherever I go, I will always have Barca in my heart.
"I was alternating with Belletti for the right back position, and the injury came at an unfortunate time."
Gabri has been linked with the likes of Middlesbrough and West Ham in the past.
