Keira Walsh: Barcelona are back in talks for Man City midfielder and discuss world record fee | Soccer News


Barcelona are back in talks with Manchester City over a deal for Keira Walsh as they discuss a world record fee for the England midfielder.

Time is running out for Barca to reach a deal, with Spain deadline Wednesday. Man City are also reluctant to sell, having rejected three previous offers.

However, City are already considering replacements, with Walsh in the final year of his contract and keen on a move.

Sunday, September 11, 6:30 p.m.

Kick off 7:00 p.m.

The previous world record is believed to be Pernille Harder’s £300,000 transfer to Chelsea from Wolfsburg in September 2020. However, US deals involve allocation fees and trading assets, so the final fee is not not disclosed.

Walsh played a key role for England in winning Euro 2022 in the summer and was named player of the match in the final as the Lionesses beat Germany at Wembley.

Since making his City debut in July 2014, the 25-year-old has made 189 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals. She has 49 caps for England.

City have already lost several key players ahead of the new WSL season, with Caroline Weir joining Real Madrid, Georgia Stanway signing for Bayern Munich and Lucy Bronze moving to Barcelona.

City kick off their 2022/23 campaign at home to Arsenal on Sunday at 7pm, live on sky sports.
