Manchester United duo tell goodbye to United fans

Manchester United duo Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial waved goodbye to Manchester United fans after Wednesday night’s 3-2 win over Newcastle.

Varane did not feature in the match due to injury while Martial was also absent from the squad due to a lack of fitness.

There’s expected to be a summer clear out at Manchester United, and French duo Varane and Martial will be part of those leaving.

Both men came out onto the pitch after the victory against Newcastle – United’s last home match of the season – to bid farewell to fans before they finally exit Old Trafford.

Varane joined Manchester United from Real Madrid in the summer of 2021 and will leave when his contract expires at the end of June.

Martial will also depart at the end of the season when his deal runs out having been at the club for nine years.

After bidding farewell to fans, Varane waited for Old Trafford to be empty out, before taking an emotional photo in the centre circle.

“Old Trafford, thank you,” Varane said on Instagram while United posted on X: “Once a Red, always a Red.”

Varane had earlier sent his own message to United fans this week: “It’s been an amazing few year to play for this special club and wearing that shirt.

“The first time I went to Old Trafford as a Manchester 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 go to Wembley it’s something they remember for life. To share that moment with them [winning the Carabao Cup] was absolutely amazing.”

Farewell to Varane and Martial. All the best for the rest of your careers.
