Manchester United Women can confirm that Ivana Ferreira Fuso will spend the 2022/23 season on loan at German side Bayer 04 Leverkusen Women, after signing a contract extension with United until the end of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international joined United in the summer of 2020 and has made 21 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals in the process – including a memorable strike in our Continental League Cup victory over Manchester City at Leigh Sports Village in November 2021. 

On Ivana’s loan, head coach Marc Skinner said: “This loan move is an excellent opportunity for Ivana to play regular first-team football. 

“We know that she will continue to develop personally and professionally and come back an even better player for Manchester United Women. The German league is very good for the development of young players and a place where Ivana can express herself. 

“We will be monitoring Ivana closely throughout the season and look forward to seeing her thrive in the Frauen-Bundesliga.” 

Manchester United Women wish Ivana a successful 2022/23 campaign in Germany.
