Manchester City have completed the signing of Laia Aleixandri on a free transfer from Atletico Madrid following the conclusion of her contract.

Aleixandri has signed a three-year deal, keeping her at the Academy Stadium until 2025, and she will officially join the club on 1 July, subject to international clearance.

The move sees City snap up their second free transfer from Atletico this summer after the recent arrival of forward Deyna Castellanos.

“Manchester City is a very big club with top players and staff, and I believe this is the best move for me to make,” said Aleixandri. “This is a team who likes to play with the ball and with an offensive style, and that suits me personally.

“My dream here is to win a lot of titles and to improve as a player with the help of my new teammates.”
