Manchester United confirm the exit of its midfielder


Manchester United Women's Football Club have confirmed the exit of Katie Zelem following the expiration of her contract at the club.

The exit of the midfielder has been seen as a big blow for the Women's Super League (WSL) side after the goalkeeper Mary Earps is expected to leave for Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer. Katie Zelem has been at the club since the senior women's team was formed in 2018 and made more than 100 appearances for the club.

The club released a statement thanking her for the efforts and everything that she has achieved during her time at Old Trafford.

"Everyone at Manchester United would like to place on record their thanks to Katie for her excellent service and wish her the best of luck in the next phase of her career."

She joined United at the age of eight and was part of the academy until 2013 when she was forced to leave as the club had no women's team at the time. Zelem captained United to a club-record second place in the WSL in 2022/23 season and to their first major trophy last season when they beat Tottenham 4-0 in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
