Barcelona's Caldentey completes Arsenal move

Barcelona attacker Mariona Caldentey has completed a free transfer to Arsenal following the expiry of her contract at the Spanish club.

The forward announced her Barcelona departure after a decade at the club last month.

Caldentey won three Champions League trophies and six Liga F titles, and was part of the Spain squad that won the World Cup last year.

The 28-year-old is fourth in Barcelona Femeni's all-time list for trophies won, only behind Alexia Putellas (30), Melanie Serrano (29) and Marta Torrejón (28).

"I'm so happy to be here," said Caldentey. "This is the right time for a new challenge for me and Arsenal is the perfect place. I think what Arsenal are doing as a club is amazing - on and off the pitch. I love the way we want to play as a team and I think there's a strong mentality building here.
