Manchester City and England midfielder Georgia Stanway have completed her move to Bayern Munich. Her contract with the club was set to expire at the end of the season and has now signed a three-year contract with the Bundesliga runners-up. She will join the German side after the Euros where she will be representing the Lionesses. Stanway had been with City since she was 16, spending seven years at the club since making her debut in 2015, scoring 57 goals in 165 appearances.
“Honestly, I’m so excited. It just feels right. It feels great to now be able to share the news and my excitement with the world. I can’t wait to get started and play for such a well-known club,” Manchester City midfielder Georgia Stanway said. “It just felt right from the very first conversation. I was absolutely convinced and my instinct told me that I belonged here. FC Bayern has very big ambitions and I really admire that.”
“We are very happy about Georgia’s signing. She is a very flexible, dangerous player and is also characterized by her mentality,” Bayern Munich Women sporting director Bianca Rech said. “It’s also a big sign and a positive signal for the league that an English player has decided to join Germany and FC Bayern.”
