Barcelona sign England star Keira Walsh for world record fee


Barcelona have completed the signing of Keira Walsh from Manchester City for a world record fee for a female footballer reported to be in the region of £350,000.

Walsh made six appearances as England won Women’s Euro 2022 in July.

The 25-year-old has spent her entire senior career at City, winning one Women’s Super League title, three FA Cups and four EFL Cups.

Three-time reigning Spanish champions Barca have now prized her away from Manchester in a deal that far surpasses the previous record of Chelsea paying Wolfsburg over £250,000 for Pernille Harder in 2020.

Walsh will link up with his former City team-mate and fellow Liones Lucy Bronze at Barca, with the defender making the same move in June.

Georgia Stanway, another City player who played at the Euros, left for Bayern Munich.
