Barcelona striker Javier Saviola confirmed his much-expected departure from the deposed Spanish champions on Monday.

However, the diminutive Argentinian refused to confirm press reports that he had agreed to join Barca´s arch-rivals Real Madrid, who pipped the Nou Camp outfit to the Spanish title on Sunday.

"I´ve taken the decision to leave the club and start a new stage," said the 25-year-old forward at a press conference on Monday. "I´ve had many experiences here and made some great friends. I´ve had the support, the affection and the unconditional appreciation of the fans."
