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

But, he is not the only player set to depart.

Paul Pogba is one of the names on the list, he is set to leave on a free transfer in July with the likes of PSG and Barcelona interested.


Jesse Lingard is also set to leave.

Newcastle and Tottenham have both been linked with a potential move.

Outcast midfielder Juan Mata will move on when his contract expires at the end of the season.

He has been limited to six appearances in all competitions, but the 33-year-old’s fortunes could change soon as he is set to move to La Liga with Barcelona and Real Sociedad both interested.

Former PSG star Edinson Cavani is on the list of departures – he has been linked with a shock move to Brazilian side Botafogo.

Forgotten goalkeeper Lee Grant is set to be offloaded after making just two appearances for the Red Devils since his arrival in 2018.
