French defender Raphael Varane will leave Manchester United at the end of the season upon the expiry of his contract.

The 31-year-old spend three seasons at the club since leaving Real Madrid in 2021.

He has made only 93 appearances for the club with multiple injuries affecting his play time but has helped United qualify for the champions league on last seasons campaign and has also won the carabao cup for the club.

“To you guys, supporters of Manchester United, it’s been an amazing few years to play for this special club and wear that shirt,” the former France international said on social media.

“The first time I went to Old Trafford as a Man United player was insane, the atmosphere was amazing.

“I fell in love with the club, with the fans. You have to play for Man United to understand what that represents. For my kids, it’s home here. It’s going to be a special place for me, for life.

“When the fans went to Wembley [last season], it’s something they will remember for life. To share that moment with them was absolutely amazing.

“Despite the fact we had a difficult season, I’m very positive for the future. The new owners are coming with a clear plan and a great strategy.

“I’ll see you at Old Trafford to say goodbye for the last game at home this season and it’s going to be very emotional day for me, for sure.”

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag says Verane will still serve United in two of its remaining matche including the FA cup final against Manchester city but will miss Wednesday’s clash against Newcastle.

Ten Hag said: “We’re planning for the last games, Not for tomorrow, but we hope for Sunday and then for the last game [against Manchester City in the FA Cup final].”
