DONE DEAL: Oshoala Joins Barcelona
Super Falcons super star, Asisat Oshoala has made another big move.
Having previously starred for top clubs like Arsenal and Liverpool, the 24-year old has sealed a loan move to Barcelona from her Chinese club Dalian Quanjian FC.
According to the agreement Oshoala will be with Barcelona for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.
Oshoala arrived in Barcelona on Thursday morning for the routine medical checks and then signed her contract in the president’s office at the Camp Nou in the presence of the director responsible for the section, Maria Teixidor, and sports manager Markel Zubizarreta.
After sealing the big move, Oshoala expressed delight at joining Barcelona.
She said: “This is obviously one of the best clubs in the world. The team has a great history and wonderful football mentality”.
“I am excited about playing with Vicky Losada again. She’s a great midfielder, with a lot of energy and skill. I also met Fabiana in China and she helped me to make this decision”.
“My goal is to strengthen the team and help them to win and make history. This is a fantastic opportunity because I’m sure something big will happen here”.
Oshoala has been named African Footballer of the Year on three occasions (2017, 2016 & 2014) and won the Golden Boot and Golden Ball at the U20 World Cup in 2014 and was top goalscorer in the Chinese Super League in 2017.
While we expect Oshoala to score goals as soon as she settles down in her new team, we also expect a selfie with Lionel Messi pretty soon.
