List of Players Leaving Manchester United – Currently, many people know Manchester United as a team that has made a lot of winning points, which has been waiting for more than what was previously available and also achieved. A squad revolution seems to be happening at Manchester United in the summer of 2022. The arrival of Erik ten Hag is most likely followed by the signing of new players who match the coach’s tactics.
On the other hand, Manchester United will also release a number of players to other clubs. Some have even confirmed that they will withdraw this summer. They left because the contract expired and was not renewed.
1. Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba is the most expensive player ever signed by Manchester United. The French midfielder was brought in from Juventus in 2016 at a price of 105 million euros or Rp. 1.6 trillion. Even though Pogba is a graduate of the Manchester United academy who was previously released free of charge in 2012.
Six years after returning to England, Pogba has finally returned to leave the Red Devils for free. The offer of a contract extension had actually been given, but Pogba turned it down. Manchester United also seemed to be overwritten by a repeat of the events of 2012 aka 10 years ago.
Pogba himself has often appeared inconsistent during his second period with Manchester United. He sometimes looks great, but often plays badly.
2. Jesse Lingard
This one player is also a graduate of the Manchester United academy. In fact, he is a good friend of Pogba from the academy until now. Jesse Lingard has loyally defended Manchester United since 2011. In fact, if you count the academy years, Lingard has been in the Red Devils costume for more than 20 years.
Unlike Pogba, Lingard has never left Manchester United permanently. However, the opportunity to play is fairly minimal.
He was even loaned several times to other clubs. Until his last season in 2021/2022, Lingard was always the second choice in Manchester United’s midfield.
Now, Lingard seems to have been hot for Manchester United. He also chose to leave after his contract expired in June 2022.
While playing for the Red Devils, Lingard recorded 232 matches in all competitions with a contribution of 35 goals and 21 assists. He has also lifted four trophies, the most prestigious of which is the 2016/2017 Europa League.

With age, the role of Mata began to be replaced by other players. However, he actually proved in 2021/2022 that he can still make an impact if given the opportunity.
However, Mata still decided to leave. It is not yet known where the 34-year-old will land.
