MANCHESTER CITY stars hit the town to celebrate their history Treble – and say farewell to club legend Vincent Kompany.

The Belgian captain announced he will leave the Etihad after 11 years, four Premier League titles and 360 appearances to join boyhood club Anderlecht as player-manager.

Kompany, along with David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones, Bernardo Silva, Aymeric Laporte and youth keeper Daniel Grimshaw were spotted at The Counter House in The Ancoats part of Manchester.

Pep Guardiola's Man City squad, who added the FA Cup to become the first team to win a British domestic Treble, will go on an open top bus parade of the city on Monday evening.

The parade, due to start at 6pm, will take a 1.5km route around Manchester and is expected to draw tens of thousands of people.

It will be a final chance for City fans to wave away Kompany – who has seen fans create a petition to get him a statue at the Etihad.

Kompany shocked football to leave City and sign a deal with Anderlecht.

In an emotional goodbye open letter to fans, he wrote: "We’ve just seen the close of an incredible season. My 11th as a Blue.

"And I cannot believe I’m writing this but … also my last as a Blue.

"The time has come for me to go now. As overwhelming as it is, I feel nothing but gratefulness.

"Sheikh Mansour changed my life and that of all the City fans around the world, for that I am forever grateful.

"It’s cliché to say it but it’s also so true: without my teammates I would have never been here today.

"To all of you, from the 2008/09 squad to today’s domestic Treble winners: I owe you guys!

"A special word also to Pep and the backroom staff: you’ve been superb."
