MADRID — Uruguay defender Diego Godin is leaving Atletico Madrid after this season.

Godin announced Tuesday he will not renew his contract with the Spanish club after failing to reach a deal.

The 33-year-old defender is reportedly negotiating a move to Inter Milan.

Godin couldn't hold back tears as he made the announcement in a news conference in front of relatives and teammates.

He played 387 matches in nine seasons with Atletico, helping the club win a Spanish league title, two Europa Leagues, three UEFA Super Cups, a Spanish Super Cup and a Copa del Rey.

He joined the club in 2010 after three seasons with Villarreal.
