Nemanja Matic says he will leave Manchester United at the end of the season

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has announced that this season will be his last at the club.

The 33-year-old joined from Chelsea in 2017 and has made 183 appearances for United. In the summer of 2020, he signed a new two-year contract with an option for an additional year.

Matic has made 26 appearances for the club this season but announced on Instagram that this season will be his last.

“After much thought, I have decided that this season will be my last at Manchester United. I informed the board, the manager and the players of my decision,” Matic said.

“It was a great honor and privilege to play for this great club. A big thank you to the fans for their unwavering support.

“I’ll do everything I can now until the end of the season to help my teammates finish as strong as possible.”

The former Serbia international joined the club five years ago and has made 122 league appearances under Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Michael Carrick and Ralf Rangnick.

the athlete announced this week that United have reached a verbal agreement with Erik ten Hag to take over as their manager from next season.

Matic was part of the United side that lost the 2018 FA Cup final to former side Chelsea and was on the bench for the 2021 Europa League final defeat.

United are seventh, six points adrift of the top four and seven league games to go. Rangick’s side host bottom-placed Norwich City on Saturday.

United are without Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Scott McTominay, Fred and Edinson Cavani, all ruled out for this weekend’s game.
