Lucy Bronze to Lyon?
« on: August 16, 2017, 05:27:16 AM »

Looks like this is happening:

The full-back is understood to be inside the last six months of her City contract and is expected to join 14-time French champions Lyon later this month.

Sounds like it'd be a good move for her and for Lyon.

Bronze was part of the Man City team that played Lyon in their April 2017 Champions League semi.

Bronze's England international teammate Toni Duggan set up shop abroad this summer - she joined Barcelona after being frustrated at Man City. So, the City squad has taken a couple of hits recently – losing Swedish striker Kosovare Asllani too.

wsl is essentially a 3 team comp with the other teams  just there as fixure fillers.
Female football would be better if there was a permanant euro champions league

I didn't really mean it about the Spring Series. Maybe Bronze agreed with Emma Hayes that it was a big deal and a big blow to City, but it's not very likely.

Bronze to Lyon, it wasn't just a wild rumour :o

- https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/aug/18/lucy-bronze-lyon-manchester-city-england-champions

Germany's Pauline Bremer joins Manchester City in exchange.

The new Lyon signing is able to greet (well, tweet) the fans in French, which is fair when the club has its own site in English. Which they may want to update!

BTW it's a 3-year contract for Bronze at Lyon, and 2 years for Bremer at Man City.
