Veteran Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic announced on Friday that he will end his five-year stay at Manchester United at the end of the season. The 33-year-old, who was signed by Jose Mourinho from Chelsea for 40 million pounds in July 2017, revealed he had told interim manager Ralf Rangnick of his decision.

“After a great deal of thought, I have decided that this season will be my last with Manchester United,” he wrote on Instagram.

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

“I will now give everything until the end of the season to help my teammates finish as strongly as possible.”

Matic has made 17 Premier League appearances this season and was in the starting line-up in United’s last match, which ended in a 1-0 defeat at Everton.
