A club statement read: “The club can announce that Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United at the end of June, upon the expiry of his contract.

“The Frenchman has enjoyed a long association with United, having joined the club’s Academy from Le Havre at the age of just 16.

“Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Paul on his successful career, and thank him for his contributions to Manchester United. We wish him all the best for the next steps on a remarkable journey.”

Pogba returned to the club in 2016 for a then-world-record fee of £89.3 million from Juventus and won three trophies in his debut campaign.

However, he has failed to find consistency throughout his return to United and faced criticism during his final season.

The midfielder was booed by his own supporters in his last two appearances against Norwich City and Liverpool.

Sources have told ESPN that Pogba is considering a return to Juventus after turning down interest from Premier League champions Manchester City.
