Ashley Young has taken to Instagram to pay a final farewell to former Manchester United players Anders Lindegaard, Jonny Evans and Javier Hernandez.

The trio left Old Trafford on permanent deals during the final 48 hours of the transfer window and it seems as though they will be missed in the North West. 

The 30-year-old winger posted a collage of himself with the three players and captioned the image: "Best of luck Jonny, @anders.lindegaard and @ch14_instagram at your new clubs... all great guys and great players 👊🏾."

Javier Hernandez posted his own Instagram message following his departure and snubbed Louis van Gaal and David Moyes, but gave a special mention to Sir Alex Ferguson and scout Jim Lawlor. 

The Mexican forward moved to German side Bayer Leverkusen in a £7.3 million deal and claimed he wanted to feel loved and happy once again. 

Anders Lindegaard and Jonny Evans will continue their careers together with both players making the switch to Tony Pulis' West Bromwich Albion. 

Evans came through the academy at Old Trafford making 198 appearances for the Red Devils and helping them to three Premier League titles and two League Cups.

Lindegaard was signed by Ferguson from Aalesund in 2010, but apart from a spell in the 2011-12 season where he replaced David de Gea, he was often second choice. The Danish international made 29 appearances for the Red Devils.


The decision to allow Hernandez to depart Old Trafford has raised a few eyebrows. The Mexican was brought in from the cold over the summer and appeared to be playing second fiddle to Wayne Rooney.

It seemed Louis van Gaal was not keen on the 27-year-old and offered him very little time on the field. 

Chicharito did not help himself however as he spurned two great chances to open his goalscoring account, in what proved to be his final United match against Brugge. 

The Red Devils' signing of Anthony Martial leaves Van Gaal with two teenager strikers to replace Rooney should something happen to the England captain.

You get the feeling that a goal could have boosted the confidence of 'Little Pea' and the player that became so deadly under Ferguson could have been rediscovered.

Manchester United fans, should any of these three players been kept at Old Trafford? Have your say below!
