French international, Paul Pogba, has said his goodbyes to Manchester United following his expected departure at the end of June.

Pogba who is tipped for a return to Serie A side Juventus released a statement on Twitter, hours after Man United announced his exit from the club.

"I feel privileged to have played for this club. Many beautiful moments and memories but most importantly an unconditional support from the fans. Thank you @ManUtd," he tweeted to his 10.1million followers.

The 29-year-old’s departure at the end of his contract will see United recoup none of the then record £89 million ($112 million) he cost them when they bought him from Juventus in 2016.

Announcing his departure, United said, “The club can announce that Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United at the end of June, upon the expiry of his contract,” read the club statement.

“The last of his 233 United games ended in the 10th minute of a defeat at Anfield in April 2022.

“It was a low-key end to a United career that brought so many individual high moments.

“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.”
