Lucy Bronze: England defender joins Barcelona after Manchester City exit

England defender Lucy Bronze has signed for Barcelona on a two-year deal.

In May, Manchester City announced the 30-year-old would leave the club when her deal expired on 30 June.

The 2020 Best Fifa Women’s Player rejoined City for a second spell in September 2020 after three years with Lyon.

“I’m very happy to play for a club like FC Barcelona, one of the biggest teams in the world. I really want to start working with the team,” Bronze said.

“After a couple of conversations, you can’t say no to Barca.”

Barcelona are the current champions of Spain’s Primera Division and were Champions League runners-up to Lyon last season.

Bronze had been linked with a move to the USA, with Real Madrid also showing interest.

She won five major trophies with City, with two of those arriving in her second spell with the club, and made a total of 111 appearances, scoring 14 goals.

It is Bronze’s second move abroad after she left City for Lyon in 2017, where she won three consecutive Champions League titles.

Bronze was tight-lipped over her future when asked this month and she was heavily linked with a move to America.

However, the season in America is already under way and Bronze is currently in training for the European Championship, which starts on 6 July in England.

She could still end up in the US in the future, but this move to Barcelona is a significant one as Bronze and the club will look to return to winning ways in the Champions League.

Bronze enjoyed success in that competition while at Lyon, winning three European titles, but did not go beyond the quarter-final stage with Manchester City.

Champions-League-Finale in Paris: Behörden begründen Polizei-Einsatz mit Tragödie von Hillsborough

Author: DER SPIEGEL – Sport

Erst 27 Jahre später erklärte die Jury einer Untersuchungskommission, dass schwere Fehler der Polizei die Katastrophe ausgelöst haben – und nicht das Fehlverhalten der Liverpool Fans. Die Polizei hätte etwa das Spielfeld früher für die Fans öffnen müssen.

Der Ärger in Liverpool ist groß

Dass die französischen Behörden diese Katastrophe zum Anlass nehmen, um ihr rigoroses Vorgehen in Paris zu erklären, sorgt für Empörung bei den Angehörigen der Opfer von damals. Louise Brookes, deren 26-jähriger Bruder damals starb, sagte dem »Guardian«: »Das ist ein völliges, ungeheuerliches Versagen. Und dieses Vorurteil, dass Liverpool-Fans Hooligans sind, das auf einem völligen Missverständnis von etwas beruht, das vor 33 Jahren geschah, hätte beinahe eine weitere Katastrophe in Paris verursacht, und zwar für eine neue Generation von Liverpool-Fans.«

Erling Haaland: Manchester City complete signing of Norwegian striker from Borussia Dortmund

Erling Haaland
Erling Haaland is the fastest and youngest men’s player to reach 20 Champions League goals

Erling Haaland says he is “in the right place to fulfil his ambitions” after completing a £51.2m transfer to Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund.

The 21-year-old scored 86 goals in 89 games for Dortmund and arrives at the Premier League champions as one of world football’s most coveted forwards.

He has signed a five-year deal until 2027 and will join the club on 1 July.

An agreement was reached for the Norway international in May after City activated the player’s release clause.

“This is a proud day for me and my family,” said Haaland, the son of former City captain Alf-Inge, who played for the club between 2000 and 2003.

“I have always watched City and have loved doing so in recent seasons. You can’t help but admire their style of play – it’s exciting and they create a lot of chances, which is perfect for a player like me,” he added.

“There are so many world-class players in this squad and Pep [Guardiola] is one of the greatest managers of all-time, so I believe I am in the right place to fulfil my ambitions.

“I want to score goals, win trophies, and improve as a footballer and I am confident I can do that here. This is a great move for me, and I can’t wait to get started in pre-season.”

City director of football Txiki Begiristain said: “Haaland is a huge talent and has been one of the best strikers in Europe over the last few seasons.

“His goalscoring record is exceptional and his performances at Borussia Dortmund and in the Champions League in particular have proved he can succeed at the highest level.

“Erling has everything we want in a striker, and we are certain he will excel in this squad and this system.”

The deal ends the club’s hunt for a successor to club-record goalscorer Sergio Aguero, who joined Barcelona on a free transfer in June 2021.

The Argentine’s departure prompted City’s summer-long and ultimately unsuccessful pursuit of Tottenham and England forward Harry Kane.

La Liga clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona were also keen to sign Haaland before he opted to join Guardiola’s English champions.

Haaland has scored 92 league goals in 121 appearances in total in spells at Molde, Red Bull Salzburg and Dortmund.

Last year he became the youngest player to reach 20 Champions League goals.

On Sunday, Haaland scored his 20th international goal in 21 games for Norway, leaving him 14 away from becoming the top men’s scorer in the nation’s history.

Southgate: “Incidenti a Wembley? Non sono tifosi”

Al Moulineux si giocherà davanti a soli duemila bambini, a causa dell’azione disciplinare adottata dalla Uefa in seguito agli incidenti verificatisi prima e durante la finale di Euro 2020, 12 mesi fa a Wembley. “E’ una situazione imbarazzante per la nostra nazione perché molte delle persone che hanno creato problemi non sono tifosi di calcio”, le parole di Southgate.
