Marco Asensio has sent a long tribute to Real Madrid fans, as he’s now set to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 27-year-old will officially play his last game for the club against Athletic Bilbao, before heading to PSG.

The striker took to social media to say his goodbyes with a touching video message to the fans.

“Dear madridistas, today I address you with a lump in my throat and a heart full of mixed feelings.

“Since I was very young, 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.

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to Real Madrid, to its president, to its board, to the coaches and to all the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make this club such a special institution.

“I would also like to mention my teammates. Together, we have lived moments of glory, fought in every battle and celebrated unforgettable victories.

“But I cannot forget the real reason to be part of Real Madrid, its incredible fans. You are the soul and the engine of this club. Your passion, your encouragement and your unconditional love are what drive us to give our all in every game and to live unforgettable nights that I will always carry with me.

“However, the time has come where I have to make a difficult decision. I have decided to embark on a new direction in my career in search of a project in which I can achieve new goals.

“Thank you, dear madridistas, for all your unconventional support. We will meet somewhere along this beautiful soccer road.”
