Arsenal Aims to Secure Manchester United Goalkeeper Mary Earps with Improved Bid
In a move that could shake up the women’s football scene, Arsenal is poised to launch an improved bid for Manchester United’s talented goalkeeper, Mary Earps. The Gunners are leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of Earps, a standout player who clinched the prestigious Golden Glove award at the Women’s World Cup.
Word has it that Arsenal’s upcoming bid will surpass the current record fee paid for a women’s goalkeeper – a substantial £100,000 previously shelled out by San Diego Wave for Kailen Sheridan. Despite the enticing figures, Manchester United stands firm, unwilling to part with their star player for any amount. Negotiations are in full swing as United seeks to secure Earps with a new contract, highlighting the club’s determination to keep her on board.
One of Earps’ standout moments came when she saved a crucial penalty during England’s clash with Spain in the World Cup final, showcasing her impeccable goalkeeping skills. Arsenal’s pursuit of the English goalkeeper underscores their commitment to bolstering their ranks. Despite already having skilled goalkeepers in the form of Manuela Zinsberger and Sabrina D’Angelo, the Gunners are eyeing Earps as a valuable addition.
With 40 caps for the England national team, Mary Earps brings experience and expertise to the pitch. Her journey in football has taken her through various clubs, including Doncaster Rovers Belles, Birmingham City, Bristol Academy, and Reading, before her move to Manchester United from Wolfsburg in 2019. Having notched up an impressive 80 league appearances for her current club, Earps’ prowess is undeniable.
Arsenal’s manager, Jonas Eidevall, is eagerly working to secure the talents of Mary Earps, a strategic move that could have far-reaching implications in the women’s football landscape.
