Manchester United are set to part ways with 30-year old midfielder Darren Fletcher. According to The Telegraph, the Scot is set to join fellow Premier League side West Ham on a three-and-a-half-year contract as Manchester United have agreed to release him for free.
Manchester United are the only club that Fletcher has played for in his professional career, and he really has been a wonderful servant for this football club. He has gone through a serious health issue whilst at the club, and it was great to see his mental strength shine through and he came back from that stronger than ever.
Since then, he has found his playing time very limited under Louis van Gaal, and at times he has looked understandably sluggish. It is in the best interests of everyone that Darren leaves the club for pastures new, and I wish him the utmost best in his new venture.
