Lucia Garcia playing for Manchester United

Manchester United have announced the departure of Lucia Garcia following the expiration of her contract at the end of this month. 

The 25-year-old joined the Red Devils in 2022, making 60 appearances and scoring 16 goals during her time at the club.

She has been an integral part of Marc Skinner’s side in recent campaigns, and scored at Wembley in May to help her team to their first bit of silverware in the WFA Cup final.

In an emotional video on social media, Garcia said: “For me, it has been two incredible seasons. I was so happy to have been a part of this team and to have helped the team. We are like a family.

“I am going to miss every single piece of Manchester United. All my friends, all the team, all the staff, all the workers here.

“I think one of the hardest parts is to leave the fans. I feel the support they give to me. I can feel they love me and I love them.”
