Gonzalo Higuain spoke of his pride at representing Real Madrid after playing what could be his last game at the Bernabeu.
The 22-year-old Argentina forward has an impressive record of better than a goal a game in his three years at the club, having joined from River Plate in 2007.
However, he is one of the lower earners at Madrid and, even though his contract runs until 2013, has been widely linked with a move away from the Bernabeu.
Higuain, who was again on target in Saturday's 5-1 win over Athletic Bilbao which sent the Primera Liga title race into the final week, told Marca: "I'm proud to take the applause from these people who know that in the three-and-a-half years I've been here I have given everything for this club.
"Whenever I go out to play, I've left everything on the field. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes it goes wrong, but I'm proud of being able to wear the shirt of this team.''
Madrid travel to Malaga on the final day of the season needing leaders Barcelona to slip up if they are to have any chance of claiming the title.
