Ivory Coast midfielder Franck Kessie said on Wednesday he will leave AC Milan when his contract expires next month.
Kessie has been heavily linked with a move to the Spanish side Barcelona in the close season after helping Milan win its first Serie A title in 11 years this term, which it sealed with a 3-0 victory at Sassuolo at the weekend.
"There are really strong emotions," Kessie told Canal + Sport Africa . "It has been five very important years where I have embraced a project.
"It is my last month of contract here, but in these five years we have managed to return to the Champions League and win the Scudetto. I did what they bought me for and I think there is no better way to say goodbye."
Kessie, who arrived in Italy in 2015 when signing for Atalanta, scored six Serie A goals in 31 games this term, including the final goal of their season at Sassuolo.
