Manchester United are delighted to announce the signing of Japan international Hinata Miyazawa on a permanent deal.

The midfielder joins United fresh from her adidas Golden Boot win at this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, where Hinata scored five goals in four games for Japan – making her the only non-European award-winner at the tournament. 

On the domestic stage, Hinata played her most recent football in northern Japan with WE League side Mynavi Sendai, who she joined in 2021. 
Hinata Miyazawa: 

“I am truly very happy to be part of this wonderful family and this great team. I am really looking forward to getting started and hope my style of play will excite our fans.”
Marc Skinner commented:

“Hinata joins our United family having proven her qualities at the highest level. As her Golden Boot win at this summer’s Women’s World Cup has shown, she will excite our fantastic fans with her direct style of play and her ability to find the most dangerous spaces. We cannot wait to see her develop even further within our playing squad.”
Polly Bancroft said:

“After this summer’s Women’s World Cup, Hinata’s attacking quality speaks for itself. We are thrilled to welcome her to Manchester United and to European football.”

Everyone at Manchester United would like to welcome Hinata to the football club and wish her the very best of success.
