Manchester United have confirmed that United States women’s national team stars Christen Press and Tobin Heath have left the club after the completion of their one-year contracts.
The two World Cup winners, who were announced as part of the USWNT’s Olympic roster on Wednesday, joined United in September 2020 and helped the side to a fourth-place finish in the Women’s Super League.
Press made 17 appearances for United and scored four goals, including one of the first goals ever scored by United’s women’s side at Old Trafford.
Heath’s time at the club was cut short when she injured her ankle in training before the side’s WSL clash against Chelsea on Jan. 17.

Then-manager Casey Stoney confirmed that the 32-year-old would be out for 10 to 12 weeks. She suffered a setback in her recovery when she injured her knee and didn’t make another appearance for United, returning instead to the U.S. to continue her recovery.
She made 11 appearances and also scored four goals during her time with the club.
