Manchester United youngster Martin Svidersky has officially announced his exit from the club.
The Slovak Under-21 international midfielder posted a message on Instagram thanking the club for their development.
Svidersky officially announces United exit
Svidersky had let it slip last week that he had to leave Old Trafford, speaking to Slovakian outlet Sportnet.
He explained that he had the opportunity to fight for the first-team football that appealed to him, as his contract with United expires at the end of this month. He is expected to announce his new club shortly.
He said: “I have spent the last few days in Spain, where my steps will continue. They will follow in the Spanish premier league, La Liga. I have high expectations, it will be a new experience, a new country.
“Spain seemed to me to be the best option for my development. It’s an opportunity to play men’s football and to have more chances.
Sportnet reported that Svidersky had already undergone a medical at his new club, speculating it was Valencia, Villarreal or newly promoted Almeria, where former United talents Largie Ramazani and Arnau Puigmal play.
United signed Svidersky in 2018, with The Metro reporting we beat competition from Chelsea, Liverpool and Celtic.
But his passage began with a nightmare when he suffered an ACL injury just weeks away, aged just 17.
Svidersky has bounced back in 2020/21 to feature regularly in midfield and defense for the Under-18s, as the team’s captain.
Last season he was a regular for the Under-23s, making 20 appearances in total.
