Man Utd signal Spanish winger Lucia Garcia on a two-year contract

Manchester United have introduced the signing of Spanish winger Lucia Garcia, loading the squad with extra invaluable attacking choices forward of the brand new WSL season.

24-year-old Garcia joins United after spending the final six seasons at Athletic Club in Bilbao.

“The fact that a club as big as Manchester United has put their faith in me is a dream come true. I already feel very much at home here,” stated the participant.

“There is a great family atmosphere at the club, which is exactly the environment I enjoy. I will give everything I have on the pitch to make our fans proud and hopefully score a few goals too!”

Fans have already had the possibility to catch a glimpse of Garcia in motion at Euro 2022 with Spain, serving to La Roja attain the quarter-finals.

United boss Marc Skinner stated: “We are delighted to sign Lucia to Manchester United Women. Her addition demonstrates the continued commitment to our team’s development.

“Lucia possesses great agility and 1v1 talents that shall be thrilling for our followers and the league. We now sit up for embedding her within the squad throughout pre-season.”

Skinner has been keen to make the most of the summer transfer window to add attacking depth to the squad after struggling to kill off games on several occasions last season, ultimately proving costly in the pursuit of a top three WSL place and the Champions League football.

To that end, United have already secured deals for Adriana Leon and Rachel Williams, with Grace Clinton arriving in midfield and Maya Le Tissier bolstering the defence.
