Rayo Vallecano captain Piti believes last Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Athletic Bilbao was possibly his last game for the club.
The 32-year-old, whose contract with Rayo runs out on June 30, indicated afterwards that he will almost certainly be seeking pastures new this summer.
“I think it was probably my last game here in Vallecas. I’ve been here a long time and it is a difficult decision, but that is the reality. A lot of things have happened and sometimes it’s good to have a change of scenery,” the striker told a Press conference.
“It is a very hard decision for me. These decisions are not taken overnight and we now have days of talks ahead, but it sounds like a goodbye.
“I see myself more out of the club than in and I’d like to thank the supporters, who have given me everything over the years. This is my club, one that has given me the opportunity to play in La Primera and to whom I owe a lot.
“I’ll leave with sweet memories, believing that everyone has done all that is necessary to make me renew, but at times you cannot reach an agreement. I’m not saying we can’t reach one but it’s going to be difficult.
“I’d like to leave with a good taste in the mouth. The decision has not been taken but I feel like I’ve played my last game in Vallecas,” he concluded.
Piti, real name Francisco Medina Luna, was signed from Hercules in 2007 and helped the Madrid outfit into the top flight in the 2010-11 season after an eight-year absence.
