Higuain: I have decided to leave Real Madrid

The striker scored in what now looks set to have been his final game at the Santiago Bernabeu - a 4-2 win over Osasuna - with a move to Serie A champions Juventus on the cards
Gonzalo Higuain has revealed that he will leave Real Madrid this summer, paving the way for a transfer to Juventus.

The Argentine opened the scoring before Michael Essien doubled the lead not long afterwards, though two goals early in the second half dragged Osasuna back into the clash at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, Karim Benzema and Jose Callejon ensured that the scoreline looked more comfortable than the performance suggested and Higuain, whose celebrations were extremely muted following his strike, says a change of scenery is needed.

"I feel like my time here has come to an end," he told reporters after the match. "I want to go where they show me that I'm really loved.

"I need a change of scenery. The decision has been made.

"I want to go where I can prove myself really. I have several offers. I hope that [Madrid] do the best for me and for themselves.

"I was never given anything here, I always had to fight to the death. I came for €12 million but I think I will sell for more."

Juventus are believed to be the forerunners for the Blancos forward, who currently has a contract until 2016 in the Spanish capital.
