Aoife Mannion said:

“I’m delighted to be joining Manchester United. It’s a new chapter for me in my career and I’m just looking forward to working as hard as I can for this club. European football is obviously a big ambition here and would be the next step for the club, so to break into the Champions League with this team would be amazing. I’ve also heard lots about the fans and how passionate they are, and I can’t wait to hear them all in the stadium next season.”
Football Director, John Murtough, said:

“Aoife is a high-quality and versatile defender who will give us some great options in our back line as we continue to strengthen the squad this summer. She brings
key Champions League experience to this group, having been involved in the competition with both Birmingham and Manchester City over the years. Aoife is also a great character to add to this group of players and we know she can have a real impact here. We’re looking forward to her getting started with the team.”
