Arnau Puigmal announces Manchester United departure

Arnau Puigmal has confirmed his Manchester United career has come to an end.

Puigmal’s contract is set to expire this summer and the MEN reported last week he was expected to leave.

Now, with a message on Instagram, Puigmal has confirmed he will be leaving.

Teammates respond

Puigmal’s message saw several United teammates from the academy respond on Instagram.

Dylan Levitt wrote: “What a guy , what a player, gonna miss you bro,” while Dishon Bernard added: “Gonna miss you brother”.

There was a message from first team star Mason Greenwood too, who wrote: “Good luck bro.”

Back in Spain

We wrote last week how Puigmal was already back in Spain after United’s academy season came to an end.

His final game came in January, fading after a terrific start to the season where he was one of United’s standout players at under-23 level.

The Mail report Spanish second division promotion chasers Almeria are favourites to sign Puigmal.

Largie Ramazani left United to sign with Almeria last summer, and he also wrote a response to Puigmal’s message, writing: “What a player 👏 good luck bro 😏”.

Puigmal’s departure is a shame, but a departure was necessary for him to play first team football. It’s up to him now to go on and make United regret not giving him a proper chance at first team level.
