‘A big step’: Jackie Groenen leaves Manchester United to join PSG

The Netherlands midfielder Jackie Groenen has left Manchester United to join Paris Saint-Germain on a three-year contract. Groenen signed for United in 2019 from FFC Frankfurt and had one year left on her deal.

“I’ve had such a great time representing this wonderful football club,” Groenen told United’s website. “I’d like to thank the Manchester United staff, players and fans for believing in me.”

The 27-year-old, who has 92 caps, described the move as “a big step for my career”. PSG, unlike United, are in the Champions League; they play the Swedish club Häcken on 21 September in the first leg of a tie that will determine whether they reach the group stage.

“I came here to win,” Groenen told PSG’s website. “So I hope to win a lot of trophies this season and I’m very excited about playing in the Champions League.”
