Bronze set for City exit

Manchester City can confirm that defender Lucy Bronze will depart the Club at the end of her current contract this summer.

The defender will bring the curtain down on her second spell at the Academy Stadium and five years altogether in sky blue next month, having made 111 appearances and scored 14 goals.

She previously enjoyed a successful three-year stint with the Club between 2014 and 2017, helping the team to secure an FAWSL league title, Continental Tyres League Cup and Women's FA Cup, with her efforts earning her City's Player of the Year accolade in 2016.

The England international returned to Manchester in September 2020 after three seasons in France with Lyon, and went on to lift two more trophies with City in 2020 (FA Cup) and 2022 (League Cup).

During her most recent spell, Bronze was also named as FIFA Best Women's Player of the Year 2020 and represented Team GB at the delayed Tokyo Olympic Games.

The full-back is now set for pastures new however after her current deal ends on 30 June.

Manchester City would like to express their gratitude and thanks to Lucy for her contributions during her two spells at the Club and wish her all the best for the future.
