City are delighted to announce the signing of German forward Pauline Bremer on a two-year deal.

The 21-year-old joins Nick Cushing’s side from Lyon, in a deal that sees right-back Lucy Bronze switch to the French club.

A prolific, hard-working and technically gifted individual, Bremer was dubbed ‘a star in the making’ at a young age and despite her youth, moves to Manchester, boasting an already-glittering CV.

The striker hopes to enjoy further success with the reigning domestic treble holders, whose professionalism and desire impressed her when Cushing’s side met Lyon in the Champions League semi-finals in April.

“I’m really happy to be here at Manchester City,” she told CityTV. “I’m looking forward to the new season and taking on a new challenge.

“It’s such a big Club and the facilities are great. I was so impressed by the whole Academy. The pitches are great, the gym is big… There are so many facilities.

“Everybody knows that Manchester City is a big, professional Club. In Germany, it’s known that women’s football is rising here in England.

“It is new that an English team is coming into the Champions League semi-finals but it was a good surprise.

“It was not easy for Lyon, beating City [over two legs]. I was injured but both games were tough and City managed to beat Lyon away, which shows they are a good team, rising.

“I think City will match my playing style. I like running and getting the ball into space. I like it when a team plays together to create opportunities.

“I am looking forward to playing in England. I heard that it rains a lot but we’ll see! I will have time to get to know the city.

“It’s a different league and a different style of play from France. It will be exciting to find out.

“I love football – the game and the togetherness with teammates. I have a real passion for the sport.”
