Another #USWNT player is heading to Manchester City and #BarclaysFAWSL.— Meg Linehan (@itsmeglinehan) January 11, 2021
According to sources, center back Abby Dahlkemper is heading over to England later this month on a 2 1/2-year long contract with the club.
In Dahlkemper, City get a genuinely great defender. Defenders are inherently underrated by nature in football. You don’t know you need a great one until you don’t. Which is why this makes for a great signing. A leader and great player.
She has played in 49 of the last 53 USWNT games, so she is reliable. In the States has been an part of the NC Courage where they have won multiple titles recently. Her move to Man City seems to be a big get and part of a larger trend as the worlds best players seem to be coming to England and the WSL in spades.
A great signing and true show of intent that City mean to compete with the Lyon’s of the world in European comps. and Chelsea among others, locally.
