Manchester United have confirmed the signing of two-time World Cup winner Tobin Heath for the 2020/21 season.
The 32-year-old winger has been a key player in a USA team that has won two World Cups and two Olympics titles. On the domestic front, Heath has won two NWSL titles in the US with the Portland Thorns.
“Manchester United is an exceptional club and I’m thrilled to be joining them,” said Heath, who has won 168 caps for the US. “I’m looking forward to the challenge of competing in England, playing with and against some of the best players in the world. I have big ambitions for this season and can’t wait to get on the pitch with my new team and start this next chapter.”
Manchester United head coach Casey Stoney said Heath’s experience and skills will be a huge asset for the club.
“We are all excited to have Tobin join the club; she is an outstanding player who brings a wealth of experience to the squad,” said Stoney. “She is extremely skilful and possesses so much quality on the ball; her speed and intelligence in one vs one situations will be a real asset that will push the team forward this season, and I can’t wait to see her make her mark on the league.
“Tobin’s many accolades and trophies also show that she is a proven winner and I’m looking forward to seeing her have a real impact in the squad.”
Heath has played in Europe before, having spent two spells with PSG in France.
