Manchester United Sign Ona Batlle From Levante

Manchester United have made their second summer signing as Spanish full-back Ona Batlle joins from Levante.

Batlle who has spent the past two seasons with Levante has signed a two year deal with Casey Stoney‘s Red Devils.

Batlle spent her youth career at Barcelona and has also played for Madrid Club de Fútbol.

Batlle has been part of the senior Spain national team since 2019 and has five senior international caps to her name.

She becomes the clubs second signing after they announced Lucy Staniforth last week as Manchester United prepare for the 2020-21 season.

On signing for the club she told the club website “It’s an honour and a pleasure to sign for Manchester United; to work with Casey Stoney and be a part of this team is a fantastic opportunity. To have the chance to come over to play in England and really push myself as a player is very exciting. I can’t wait to meet my new team-mates and help to contribute to as much success as I can.”

Stoney was delighted to secure her target as she explained “Ona is an exciting young full-back with fantastic pace and a real attacking mindset, her style of play fits perfectly with the philosophy we have at the club. She is a hard worker and broke into the senior Spain side last year which shows the talent she possesses and I know she will have a great impact for us. It’s fantastic to have Ona join the club and we’re looking forward to working with her.”
