Maya Le Tissier set to sign for Manchester United Women

Marc Skinner is set to welcome Maya Le Tissier to Manchester United.

Brighton defender Maya Le Tissier is set to join Manchester United on a long-term deal after the Red Devils agreed to pay her release clause.

According to the Telegraph, multiple sources have confirmed the fee would be in the range of £50,000-£60,000 for Le Tissier to join United.

The report adds that the paperwork is nearing completion.

Meanwhile, BBC Sport claim that Le Tissier has already attracted interest from Chelsea and Manchester City.

It’s an exciting signing for manager Marc Skinner, who is aiming to lead the women’s side to UEFA Champions League qualification for the first time, having just missed out last season.

BT Sport journalist and commentator Michael McCann says Le Tissier “got it all” and believes he is the kind of signing that can help United secure Champions League football.

Le Tissier holds the record for the most appearances by a teenager in the Women’s Super League since last season. That alone suggests United are signing a 20-year-old with plenty of potential.

The Brighton starlet has also represented England at Under-23 level and hopes this move to United will give her a greater chance of making it into the Lionesses senior squad.
