USA international Catarina Macario signs for Chelsea
Chelsea has announced the signing of USA international Catarina Macario. The 23-year-old sensation, who has been making waves at Lyon with her impressive performance, is now set to grace the Women’s Super League with her talent.
Macario has been a standout player at Lyon over the past two seasons, scoring an impressive 17 goals in 29 appearances. Her move to Chelsea is expected to bring a new dynamism to the team and further strengthen their attacking prowess.
The USA international will officially join the club on July 1, having signed a three-year contract. In a statement to Chelsea’s official website, Macario expressed her excitement about the new journey, saying, “I can’t wait to get started here! I’m really happy to sign for Chelsea and I hope to represent the jersey well over the next few years.”
Macario, who can play either as a No.10 or a more traditional number nine, is looking forward to linking up with Chelsea’s forward players such as Sam Kerr, Lauren James, and Guro Reiten. She also expressed her excitement about reuniting with Kadeisha Buchanan.
Reflecting on her time in Europe, Macario said, “I’ve been fortunate to have some great experiences in Europe already with Lyon, playing with many top players and of course winning the Champions League also. I hope to carry on those experiences here and bring home the trophy for Chelsea as well!”
Emma Hayes’ side, the reigning champions of the WSL, will undoubtedly benefit from Macario’s addition as they aim to make their mark in the Champions League in the upcoming season.
