Lazaar – who suffered an injury late last year – was axed to make space for new arrival Bacary Sagna, who left Manchester City last summer.

The 26-year-old will not be able to play for Benevento between now and the summer, when he hopes to go to the World Cup with Morocco.

Lazaar – who signed a five-year deal at United in the summer of 2016 after joining from Palermo – today reacted to reports on his situation at Benevento by posting a message on social network Instagram.
