Strong possibility that Carli Lloyd, world champion & Fifa Women’s Player of Year, will join @ManCityWomen. Great coup for City if she signs

The agreement is said to be a short-time deal similar to Alex Morgan’s with Lyon. Lloyd will join the reigning English FA WSL 1 Champions Man City Women and will be eligible to compete with them in their current UEFA Women’s Champions League campaign which has reached the quarter-final stage. If Man City beat the Danish club Fortuna Hjørring then they have a chance of meeting Lyon in the semi-final!
