    It's a strong possibility according to Henry Winter. Would be quite a coup, given that she is the FIFA Women's Player of the Year.

    When do the ladies kick off the new season?

    Wow. Would be a huge signing and would raise City's profile over here in the US with women fans. We have already seen Alex Morgan go to Lyon, Crystal Dunn to Chelsea ladies and Heather O'Reilly sign for Arsenal ladies.

    They're playing a friendly tonight I think, so it must be soon.

    They play CL games in March and then the league starts in April.

    Friendly tonight and there's the CL game(s) they qualified for last season but the new season isn't kicking off until the Autumn of this year! There's some comp going on this Spring to fill in for the time being!

    This is an interesting article, too.

    The lady is 34 according to Wiki. I thought we were getting a twenty-something world beater!

    I think in the women's game they retire later. Less money, less demanding schedule, lower intensity in the games.

    She's just won the ballon d'or so she must be pretty decent still.

    She might have won FIFA player of the year but there seems to be some who think she wasn't the best in the USA last season. I look forward to her coming, if she comes. Age shouldn't be a factor!
