Nemanja Matic confirms he will leave Man Utd this summer

Nemanja Matic has confirmed he will leave Manchester United when his contract expires at the end of the campaign.

The Serbian joined United from Chelsea in 2017 in a £32m deal and has played 182 games for the club under Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Michael Carrick and current interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

But with Erik ten Hag set to arrive at Old Trafford as the new permanent manager this summer, he has confirmed this season will be his last at the club.

‘After a great deal of thought, I have decided that this season will be my last with Manchester United. I have informed the board, the manager and the players of my decision,’ Matic wrote on Instagram.

‘It has been a huge honour and a privilege to play for this great club. A big thank you to the fans for their unwavering support.

‘I will now give everything until the end of the season to help my teammates finish as strongly as possible.’

Matic is one of four senior players approaching the end of their deals with Jesse Lingard, Cavani and Paul Pogba also out of contract at the end of the season.

The World Cup winner has not reached a new agreement with the Red devils and recently suggested he is keen to join a club who are more capable of winning trophies.

‘You have to be honest, the last five seasons have not satisfied me – really not at all,’ Pogba said during last month’s international break.

‘This year it is dead, we won’t win anything. Whether it is with Manchester United or at another club, I want to win trophies.’
