United confirm Pogba and Lingard exits

Manchester United (28/1 – Premier League 2022-23 Outright) have confirmed that both Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard will leave the club when their contracts come to an end this month.

Pogba, who won the World Cup with France in 2018, struggled with injuries this season and was limited to 27 appearances across all competitions.

The Frenchman graduated from the club’s academy in 2011 but only made three first-team appearances before being snapped up by Juventus, whom he made over 120 appearances for during a four-year spell in Turin.

United paid £89million in 2016 to bring Pogba back to Old Trafford but he was only able to win two trophies during that time, lifting the EFL Cup and Europa League in 2017.

The 29-year-old scored 39 goals in 233 appearances across his two spells at Old Trafford and following the news he will be leaving the Theatre of Dreams for a second time, he expressed his gratitude to the club on social media.

He wrote on Twitter: “I feel privileged to have played for this club.

“Many beautiful moments and memories but most importantly an unconditional support from the fans. Thank you, Man Utd.”

United (11/10 – Top 4 Finish) also confirmed that Lingard will move onto pastures new this summer, with West Ham United one of several Premier League clubs chasing his signature.

The Englishman graduated from the club’s academy at the same time as Pogba, but he stayed put, enjoying loan spells at Leicester City, Birmingham City, Brighton, Derby and West Ham.

He only started two Premier League matches last season, but a fresh start could help him regain his place in the England squad ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
