Paul Pogba is set to leave Manchester United on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of June, and the club has confirmed.
The French midfielder costed Manchester United a world record £89m when he rejoined the club from Juventus in 2016.
“It was a low-key end to a United career that brought so many individual high moments,” the club stated.
“So many beautiful goals, assists and pieces of skill. For a boy that joined the academy at 16 to make over 200 United appearances and lift the Youth Cup, along with two major pieces of silverware, is something that should be applauded and celebrated.”
Pogba, now 29-years-old, scored 39 goals in 233 appearances across his two stints with Manchester United.
This morning, Pogba expressed his emotions on his Twitter account:
Pogba first joined Manchester United from the French club Le Havre in 2009 at 16-years-old, and he was part of the academy side that won the Youth Cup in 2011.
Attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard will also leave the club when his contract expires at the end of of the month.
