Confirmed transfer of Georgia Stanway from Manchester City to Bayern Munich
The transfer of England midfielder Georgia Stanway from Manchester City to Bayern Munich has been finalised. The 23-year-old, whose City contract was set to expire at the end of next month, has signed a three-year agreement with the Bundesliga runners-up and will join them after the Women’s European Championship, when she will be a member of the Lionesses squad. “It’s also a big sign and a positive signal for the league that an English player has decided to join Germany and FC Bayern. Bayern Munich Women sporting director Bianca Rech said: “We are very happy about Georgia’s signing.
Stanway had been with City since she was 16, spending seven years at the club since making her debut in 2015, scoring 57 goals in 165 appearances. She enjoyed a memorable breakthrough season in 2015-16 by winning City’s Rising Star award after the club won the Women’s Super League and League Cup. The following year, Stanway starred as City lifted the FA Cup before scoring her first senior England goal, on debut in November 2018. Stanway is one of City’s highest appearance makers and the club’s all-time record goalscorer as a professional outfit, having overtaken Nikita Parris’ previous record in January 2022.
Manchester City Women have no interest in selling Khadija Shaw despite interest from Paris Saint-Germain. Shaw scored nine goals in the Women’s Super League this season as City finished third and qualified for the Champions League. As well as Stanway, Lucy Bronze and Caroline Weir have been offered contracts by clubs abroad.
