“My cycle at Real Madrid has come to an end. Impossible to write down what I felt here. I want to share my feelings. In these four years I had the honor to wear this shirt, I felt nothing but pride. Today I have to go, but I want to make clear that it has never been my desire to leave Real Madrid. I only asked for fair things. I value many things, money isn’t one. I’ve been lucky enough to share a dressing room with fantastic players, who have been even better companions. I want to apologize for the times I was wrong, on or off the pitch. It was never my intention to harm anyone. I sweated for this shirt every game as if it was my last game. I want to thank Spain for everything they gave me and especially for allowing my daughter to be born. My wife, daughter and I will be forever grateful. I wish that Real Madrid has a great season and achieves all their objectives. I will never forget the game at the Bernabeu in the Supercopa where I received an immense ovation.
Hala Madrid until forever!”
- Angel Di Maria
