French World Cup-winning midfielder Paul Pogba is to leave Manchester United at the end of June, the club said Wednesday, bringing the curtain down on a largely disappointing second spell.
The 29-year-old’s departure at the end of his contract will see United recoup none of the then record of Sh13 billion he cost them when they bought him from Juventus in 2016.
He flourished initially under Jose Mourinho and was part of the sides that won the League Cup and Europa League in 2017.
However, his subsequent performances rarely matched those he produced for France in their 2018 World Cup campaign.
Fitness problems limited him to 27 appearances last season in an unimpressive campaign for both player and club as United had to be content with a Europa League spot.
Pogba scored 39 goals in 233 appearances across his two spells at the club but his final home appearance against Norwich City in April saw him jeered by his own supporters as he was substituted.
