Departing Arnau Puigmal reflects on 4 years with Man Utd

Arnau Puigmal has announced he's leaving Manchester United.

Puigmal, 20, departs from the club on a free transfer after deciding to look elsewhere for his chance to break into senior football.

Almeria are favourites to land him and he posted to social media: "Four years ago I decided to leave everything behind and sign for Manchester United.

"I took that plane to follow my dream of becoming a professional football player. And I would definitely go through it all over again.

"I've experienced many things that will be part of me forever. I've been lucky to share the changing room with one of the best teams, personally and professionally, I've ever played with. I will take great friends with me forever.

"Now I feel it's time to put an end to this amazing phase of my life. But first, I just wanted to thank every person in this club that has helped me from day one. I feel blessed that our paths crossed, and you will always be in my heart.

"Once a red, always a red."
