Scotland striker Jane Ross joined City in November 2015 from Vittsjo GIK, and has previously featured for Glasgow City and Paisley Saints.
After helping the Scottish outfit to six league titles, three Scottish Cups, three League Cups and a place in the last 16 of the Champions League - as well as scooping the Player of the Season Award in her debut campaign - she made the decision to turn professional in 2013 and made the move to Sweden, where she netted 51 goals in 82 games.
Having tasted success before, Ross is hoping to add to her collection of medals with Nick Cushing's side.
A prolific striker, Ross received her first call-up to the Scotland under-19s squad at the age of just 16 and has represented her country at senior level since 2009, scoring 38 goals in 88 appearances.
She bagged a brace in the 7-0 Euro 2017 qualifier victory over Belarus and netted 13 goals in her side's 2015 World Cup qualifying campaign, becoming the joint second-highest goalscorer in Europe.
In making the move to Manchester, Ross follows in the footsteps of Scotland teammate Jennifer Beattie, who signed from Montpellier in the winter of 2014 and has since encouraged her compatriot to join her.
Admired for her strength, control and technique, Ross is also quick and able to shoot with both feet.
Aside from her footballing career, she also studied at the University of Stirling on a scholarship but deferred her Master of Philosophy degree to concentrate on her sporting ventures.
