He has been City’s captain for eight years, winning four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups.
In an open letter on Facebook, Belgium defender Kompany said leaving City
"Doesn’t feel real…Countless of times have I imagined this day," he said. "After all, the end has felt nearby for so many years.
"Man City has given me everything. I've tried to give back as much as I possibly could."
He went further to add; "I want to share my knowledge with the next purple generations".
"With that, I will also put a bit of Manchester in the heart of Belgium."
