Lucy Bronze: England defender joins Barcelona after leaving Man City | Football News
Lucy Bronze has joined Barcelona after leaving Manchester City.
The 30-year-old right-back, who will play for England at Euro 2022 this summer, has signed a two-year deal with the Spanish champions and Champions League runners-up.
Bronze had made 111 appearances for City during her two years in Manchester, scoring 14 goals, but left the club at the end of her contract.
The defender told Sky Sports News last week that a decision on her club future had been made – and now her focus is fully on England going into this summer’s European Championships on home soil.
Bronze will link up with Barcelona after the tournament, with the Spanish giants recording an unblemished league record last season by winning all 30 of their matches to romp to the title.
The Catalan club scored 159 goals to win the league but fell short in the Champions League final – losing 3-1 to Lyon, who Bronze represented for three years between 2017 and 2020.
Sarina Wiegman has announced her final 23-player England Women squad for the upcoming Women’s European Championships.
She has whittled down her squad from 28 players as England prepare for a home Euros, starting on July 6 against Austria at Old Trafford.
