Walsh moves to Barcelona for world-record fee

Keira Walsh has completed her move to Barcelona from Manchester City for a world-record fee.

The fee for Walsh, who has signed a three-year contract, is officially undisclosed but it sets a new world record for a transfer in the women's game.

The previous world record is believed to be Pernille Harder's £300k move to Chelsea from Wolfsburg in September 2020. However, US deals involve allocation fees and trade assets so final fees are undisclosed.

Man City reluctantly agreed to sell Walsh after rejecting multiple offers from Barca this summer. Walsh was in the final year of her contract and was keen on the move

Man City are now looking at replacements for Walsh before Thursday's WSL transfer deadline.
