Mary Earps leaves Manchester United ahead of Paris Saint-Germain move

Manchester United have confirmed England goalkeeper Mary Earps will leave the club following the expiration of her contract.

Earps, 31, is out of contract at the end of this month and is set to expected to accept an attractive offer to join Paris Saint-Germain, as previously reported by The Athletic.

She is understood to want to compete for trophies at this stage in her career with the financial side of the offer not a priority.

A club statement on Saturday morning said: “Everyone at the Manchester United would like to thank Mary for her fine service and wish her the best of luck in the next stage of her career.”

Earps’ future has been the subject of much speculation for some time with talks beginning after England’s European Championship victory in July 2022.

United then turned down a world-record bid for a goalkeeper when Arsenal tried to sign Earps before the WSL summer transfer window closed on September 14.

United finished fifth in the WSL last season, their lowest league finish since winning promotion in the 2018-19 campaign but did win the FA Cup, the women’s team’s first-ever major honour.

Earps has played 125 times for United since joining from Wolfsburg in 2019 and has 50 senior caps for England, bringing up the milestone in her last appearance against France last month.

In January she was voted The Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper for a second successive year, becoming the first two-time winner in the award’s history.

PSG finished 11 points behind Lyon last term after winning the Division 1 Feminine title in the 2022-23 season.

United announced on Wednesday that club captain Katie Zelem will also leave the club.
