MADRID: Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio confirmed Saturday he is leaving the Spanish giants at the end of his contract in June.

“I have to take a difficult decision -- I have decided to embark on a new direction in search of a new project where I can achieve new goals,” Asensio said in a video he published on social media.

“Today I address you with a lump in my throat and mixed feelings.

“From a very young age, Real Madrid became my passion, my dream and my most cherished goal, and I have had the privilege of making this dream come true during these wonderful years.”
