Lucy Bronze has joined Barcelona on a two-year contract after choosing to end a second spell at Manchester City.
Barcelona confirmed the signing on Twitter, posting a picture of the England right-back in her new kit with the caption: “Some colours that look great on you @LucyBronze”.
Bronze’s two-year contract at Manchester City expires this month and the full-back has chosen to continue her career abroad, having had a successful time at Lyon between 2017 and 2020, winning three Champions Leagues and Fifa’s The Best Award.
Bronze, who will be 31 in October, had already told City in May that she intended to leave. She passed a medical at Hospital de Barcelona on Saturday morning and signed shortly after.
“I am very happy to play for a club like FC Barcelona, one of the biggest teams in the world. I’m really looking forward to starting work with the team,” she said on Barcelona’s official website. “After a couple of conversations, you can’t say no to Barça.”
Barcelona have strengthened their squad this summer after being beaten by Lyon in the final of the Champions League last season. Bronze is their third signing, joining Laia Codina and the Nuria Rábano at the club.
