London, Jun 1 (EFE).- Manchester United on Wednesday confirmed the departure of Paul Pobga, whose contract with the Premier League club expires at the end of the month.
“Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Paul on his successful career, and thank him for his contributions to Manchester United,” the Red Devils said in a statement.
“We wish him all the best for the next steps on a remarkable journey,” the statement read.
The Frenchman, who first joined United in 2011 at 16, ends his second Manchester United spell after playing between 2012 and 2016 for Juventus, where he became one of the best midfielders in the world.
Since joining United, the 29-year-old collected 39 goals and 51 assists in 233 games to win a Europa League and two League Cups.
Physical issues have marred his last season with United, playing only 27 matches.
His departure is the first decision announced in the era of coach Erik Ten Hag, who is expected to return United to their past glory and end their five-year title drought.
Manchester United ended last season in the sixth spot, their worst Premier League finish. EFE
