Arsenal winger Nikita Parris has joined Manchester United after just one season in North London. Parris became Arsenal’s record signing last summer when she joined the club from Lyon.
However, she was recruited prior to the appointment of Jonas Eidevall as coach and she struggled to fit into Eidevall’s counterpressing style. Parris, Arsenal and United agreed the terms of this transfer some weeks ago but the announcement was held up by England’s participation in the Euros.
The transfer will include a fee since Parris’ Arsenal contract had not expired but it doesn’t match the fee they paid Lyon last summer. The club are looking to recruit a replacement and targeted Brazilian international Geyse earlier in the summer before she joined Barcelona.
