Anthony Martial confirms Man Utd exit

Anthony Martial has confirmed his exit from Manchester United to end his nine years at the club.

The Frenchman's Man Utd contract expires this summer and he will leave as a free agent.

The 28-year-old revealed his departure on Instagram: "It's with great emotion that I write to you today to say goodbye. After nine incredible years at the club, the time has come for me to turn a new page in my career."

He added: "Manchester United will always be in my heart. This club has left its mark on my career and offered me an incredible opportunity to play in front of you.

"I'm leaving to take on new challenges, I'll always be a Red Devil and I'll continue to follow the club's results with passion. Thank you again for everything, and see you soon."

Martial's last Man Utd appearance came on December 9, 2023 in a 3-0 home defeat to Bournemouth.
