Lucy Bronze: Barcelona transfer was a ‘no brainer’


Lucy Bronze: Barcelona

England defender Lucy Bronze revealed that her decision to join Barcelona was a no-brainer and added that she rejected a chance to move to European Champions Lyon. She played with the French club for three years but decided against a return. Her Manchester City contract will expire on June 30 and will sign a two-year contract with Barcelona.

“I had offers from Lyon and Barca, the two best teams in the world. It wasn’t bad to be able to pick from that and make my decision,” new Barcelona signing Lucy Bronze said. “It gives me loads of confidence as a player knowing these big teams who are so successful want to sign me.”

“I knew I wanted to play abroad again. My experience at Lyon was the best time and best moment in my career,” she added. “Going out and pushing myself into a different culture, a different experience, playing with the world’s best players – to have the chance to do that again was a no-brainer. Maybe I can’t hype doing the same experience again with Barca but I would love to. I’ve not had that experience in England quite the same as in Lyon, hopefully, I can do it again.”

“After the signing, Alexia texted me saying she’s so excited to play with me on the team,” she continued. “Things like that give you huge confidence when players want to play with you and teams want you. Bronze, who is in England’s squad for their home European Championship this summer, wanted the transfer completed before the competition starts on 6 July. The one thing I said to Barca and my agent was ‘I want it done before the tournament. I want to focus on playing well for England, I don’t want questions about what club you’re going to next and all the talk and the gossip around that.”
