Women's Sport: Pauline Bremer to leave Manchester City at the end of the season

Manchester City v Arsenal - Barclays FA Women's Super League

Women's Super League club Manchester City have announced forward Pauline Bremer will leave the club at the end of the season to join German champions Wolfsburg.

Bremer joined City from Lyon in 2017 as part of an exchange deal for Lucy Bronze.

The 23-year-old, who has scored 22 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions for the Sky Blues this season, will leave the Academy Stadium upon her contract expires. Due to injury last season, it halted the German's WSL spell, but this season has seen her bag 10 goals in 12 games.

"I leave with so many fantastic memories - City will always be in my heart," Bremer told the club website. After three wonderful years in Manchester, I have taken the difficult decision to leave at the end of this season and accept an offer from Wolfsburg for a new challenge in my career.

"I believe the time is now right for the next chapter in my football journey and I am looking forward to the challenge of playing in the German Bundesliga." 

The striker is no stranger to Germany's top flight, having played for Turbine Potsdam's first-team between 2012-15.

City's head of women's football, Gavin Makel, said the following on Bremer leaving the club:

"This isn't a decision that Pauline has taken lightly - we fully understand her reasons and she has been a credit to Manchester City during her time at the club.

"We will wish her well in her next step, but we know that she will continue to give her absolute all in our remaining fixtures this season."
