Manchester United have confirmed the signing of midfielder Irene Guerrero on transfer deadline day for the Women’s Super League.

The 26-year-old joins the club having started her career at Real Betis, before moving to Levante and most recently plying her trade with Atletico Madrid.

Guerrero was also a member of the Spain side that won the Women’s World Cup last month, beating England 1-0 in the final in Sydney.

“I feel very happy and very privileged to be here,” Guerrero said.

“I am very proud to be part of the Manchester United family and look forward to achieving all our goals together.”

United boss Marc Skinner added: “Irene is a World Cup winner whose quality is an excellent addition to our team.

“The experience she brings, both domestically and internationally, will be key as we pursue success across the multiple competitions, we face this season.

“We are delighted to bring a player of Irene's stature to Manchester United Women.”

Meanwhile, striker Ivana Ferreira Fuso has left United to join Birmingham having spent last season on loan at Bayer Leverkusen.
