Barcelona captain Vicky Losada signs for Manchester City Women

Manchester City Women has signed Vicky Losada from Barcelona.

The Spanish midfielder has agreed to a two-year deal with the WSL runners-up after leading her hometown club to the treble last season. “I’m so happy,” Losada exclusively told Sky Sports. “I like the style they’re showing, it can be the most similar to Barca. I want to play in big games, the Champions League and win trophies here.”

Losada was a key player of the Barcelona side that defeated City and knocked them out of the Champions League last season. This tie would play a much larger part in her future than she was aware of at the time.

“I didn’t know this was going to happen but it’s true, I remember talking with the girls in the changing room and saying this is the best team we’ve played this year. In the end, football is football. The girls will know me soon, I’m a very close person, I can help them with my experience and I look forward to that soon,” Losada told Sky Sports

Losada was honoured with an emotional send-off by Barcelona after she announced she was leaving. The entire playing staff burst into applause at the end of her farewell press conference. Losada has now been established as a Barcelona legend but she will return for her second Women’s Super League spell after two years at Arsenal a few seasons ago.
