Marta’s agent Fabiano Farah has told Swedish Eurosport she has spoken to four clubs in Sweden, Tyresö FF, Malmö, Linköping and Umeå.


Two clubs in Sweden have openly expressed interest in signing five times winner of FIFA World Player of the Year, Göteborg and Umeå IK. German team FFC Frankfurt are also keen to sign the Brazilian star.

Marta enjoyed a successful season with WNY Flash in the US Women’s Professional Soccer league but with financial struggles the league is struggling to keep some of the biggest stars. The 2012 season will see only five teams competing compared to the seven teams that launched the league in 2009.

Marta is one of the biggest names in women’s football and is rumoured to be the highest paid player. The former president of Chicago Red Stars told the Vancouver Sun than the average in the WPS is between 50,000 to 100,000 dollars per season, however Marta can earn somewhere between 400,000 to 500,000 dollars per season.

As far as we know Marta has not made any comment about whether she wants to leave the USA and WNY Flash at this time she is still very much part of their team. Marta’s WNY Flash team-mate Caroline Seger recently made the move from the WPS team to Swedish side Tyresö FF

    I wasn’t talking about you, Mr Ternai. I would have mentioned your name if I did.

    Of course Norway have regressed since 1995-2000 – though if a country with 4.5 million people were to dominate global women’s football, there’s something wrong with women’s football in the world, not in Norway. I don’t think Holland are too pleased about playing Norway instead of Italy in their Euro group, for example.

    It will def be a big loss for WNY Flash, given that WPS is not gona proceed for this season.
