Manchester United is delighted to announce the signing of Norway international Vilde Bøe Risa on a deal until the end of the 2022/23 season, with the option of a further year.
Vilde Bøe Risa said: “I’m happy to be here, at such a big club that I have grown up supporting. Manchester United is huge in Norway so to be able to come here and play for the team now is a dream come true.
“I am really looking forward to playing in the WSL and I want to help the team as much as I can in qualifying for the Champions League. I’m also excited to get to know my new team-mates and, of course, I hope I can see the fans in the stadium soon too.”
John Murtough, football director, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Vilde to the club, she has all the qualities required to be a Manchester United player and we know she can have a great impact here. She reads the game so well and is a fantastic playmaker with great vision and link-up play.
“Vilde brings leadership skills from her time in Sweden, along with Champions League experience, which is something the club is striving for. She is just one of a number of key signings we are making this summer as we look to build on last season with the women’s team.”

Hopefully the new manager will be confirmed soon.

Whether Stoney stayed or not, I expected James, Heath and Press to leave. The outgoings other than those are a blow though, especially Turner going - don't know if that is because her fiancée moved to the US so wanted to be closer to her or not. We've had five confirmed outgoings with more to come (James at least) and one signing. We need a fair few more with the new season starting at beginning of September. Need new players to settle in.

Vilde Bøe Risa has been a very good player for Kopparbergs, where she was captain ar a young age, and Norway. We have quite a few good midfielders now.

With this signing, and a new manager announcement any time soon, do people still feel like the woman's team is an after thought?
