Mary Earps: Man Utd Women reject bid for England goalkeeper from unnamed club -Dlight News

Manchester United Women have turned down an offer for England goalkeeper Mary Earps from an unnamed club.

The bid is thought to be a world record for a goalkeeper in the women’s game.

Earps played in all seven of England’s matches at the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, and she also saved a penalty from Spain’s Jenni Hermoso in the final defeat.

The England No 1 was then awarded the Golden Glove as England finished runners-up.

United signed Earps from Wolfsburg in 2019. She has played every minute of United’s league games for the past four seasons and she won The Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper award in February.

She has one year left on her United contract.

The WSL transfer window closes on September 14 and the season starts on October 1.

Twenty of England’s 23-player World Cup squad compete in the Women’s Super League, with 15 at top-four clubs Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United.

The WSL starts on Sunday October 1 with six matches, including reigning champions Chelsea vs Tottenham live on Sky Sports at 5.30pm.

Some WSL sides have already begun their pre-season training, with England players expected to return to their respective squads in the next couple of weeks, before then regrouping for the Nations League.

After the Lionesses’ European Championship win last year there were record-breaking tickets sales across the WSL, with many hoping this summer’s World Cup campaign will bring even more eyes to the league.
