Aissatou Tounkara joins Manchester United from a Spanish side, Atlético Madrid. She penned a two-year deal, until June 2024.
The 27-year-old started her senior career with Paris FC, where she spent seven years. In 2018, the French defender swapped France for Spain and signed for Atlético Madrid. For Rojablancas, Tounkara played 83 matches, 17 in the last season. She is also a regular in the French national team, with 35 caps on her tally so far.
