Manchester United is delighted to announce the signing of US Women’s National Team forward Christen Press on a contract until the end of the 2020/21 season, subject to obtaining a work permit.

The 31-year-old striker has been with National Women’s Soccer League side Utah Royals since 2018, and has spent much of her career playing in America and Sweden, with spells at Chicago Red Stars, Göteborg FC and Tyresö FF respectively over the last eight years.

Press is a two-time World Cup winner with the USA, most recently lifting the trophy at last year’s tournament in France. She has 138 international caps and has scored 58 goals for her country.
Christen Press said: “I’m really excited to be joining Manchester United this season. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to play for such an elite club and beyond ready to get back on the field.

“I feel blessed to have the opportunity to continue to strive to be my best and to compete for trophies this year. I look forward to this new challenge and I can’t wait to start training with the team.”
Casey Stoney said: “Christen is a world-class player and we are thrilled to have her on board at the club. She has a proven record and her stats speak for themselves; she’s a ruthless striker who scores so many different types of goals, and I know she can add some real quality to our squad.

“Christen is also hugely experienced and for me it’s fantastic to add another senior figure like her in the dressing room.”
