Manchester United midfielder, Nemanja Matic has confirmed he is leaving the Manchester club at the end of the season.

Matic took to his Instagram to announce his decision to leave.

“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.

“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.” He wrote.
