Juanfran bids farewell to Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid defender Juanfran has played his last game for the club, in their final match of the season at Levante.

Diego Simeone's side brought down the curtain on their 2018-19 campaign, with a 2-2 draw at the Ciutat de Valencia, and the Spanish international was joined in bidding farewell to the club, by skipper Diego Godin and Antoine Griezmann.

Godin's exit was confirmed earlier this month, after declining a one year contract extension, and he is reported to be moving to Serie A side Inter Milan, with Griezmann heavily linked with a move to rivals FC Barcelona. 

Juanfran, who is out of contract this summer, was also offered a one-year deal - as per Atletico's policy for players aged 30 or over - but he also turned down the club's offer.

The full back, who signed for the club from Osasuna back in 2011, has made over 350 appearances for Simeone's side, and was a key part of their 2013-14 La Liga winning side.

The 34-year old, who was made captain for the game, has not made an announcement on his future at this stage.
