Rumours have already begun about where Seger and Marta will move to following yesterday’s statement that Tyresö FF will not be extending their contracts beyond this summer.
There will no doubt be huge interest for the world class, experienced players from clubs around the world.
The first club to reveal publicly they were in talks with Marta’s agent is Norwegian side Avaldsnes but the Brazilian superstar may be too expensive. Marta’s monthly salary is reported to be 168 000.
Another viable rumour is a move to French club Paris Saint-Germain. Seger would join her Swedish National Teammate Kosovare Asllani and PSG are not afraid to be big spenders and will be pleased to be home to some of the best players in the world.
Other big clubs in Europe have been contacted although they have yet to be revealed. In my opinion, I would suggest Manchester City LFC and Chelsea Ladies would be in the running. Both of these teams are spending a lot of money building squads with international players from England and overseas.
Another option is the NWSL, but the new American league will probably not be able to accomodate Marta’s pricetag, I don’t think any of the clubs will want to risk getting into financial difficulties given the previous USA professional league’s fate.
